  • Notes:
    • Contour leds - the leds are hidden close to the usb port under the main touch panel. none of the hidden Leds are grounded out but, always receives V+ even when in standby ( red light standby ) reason is unknown and has been found even back on first gen models.
    • Compatibility with other ps3 models - this board will work with out back white, hidden, eject led, and 10th gnd pin on a 300X model full power eject and red and green led, A KSW-001 Will not work on a 200X model (dsw-001 slot).


DSW-001 Pinout
Pin Name Connected to Description
On Motherboard On Switch board
1 RMC_IN ? Syscon SW2-30x, pin 13 Testpad Only This line have a Testpad @ switchboard, seems that it is a service pin.
Also connected to a pin of a Service Connectors ?
