Back in the day Commodore used round DIN connectors of various pin configurations for the various ports on the computer. This eight pin variation is used for the C64 video connector which was used on all but the very early 5-pin video C64 models.
The 8-pin video connector is a special type having a 262-degree, horseshoe shaped, pin arrangement. The more typical circular 8-pin DIN arrangement will not fit.
Fortunately, these connectors are still being manufactured. The difficult part is getting a good quality connector as they all look very similar. Cheap connectors use a hard nickel outer plating which has a fairly high contact resistance.
Our DIN connectors have a silver alloy plating that improves conductivity and the reliability of the connection. This results in a small voltage drop across the power connection. It also makes them easier to solder to.
We also have the 6-pin IEC serial connector and 7-pin C64 power connector in stock too.
We are happy to be able to offer these quality connectors to you for your vintage Commodore computers.
