Module sockets

Hello

I have two small question about the sockets… more exactly about the Pins.
I wanted to use the PWM Signal of the Motor Driver L298 Module.

But it seems they changed a bit the documantation.
A while ago there was this nice Image of the socket and each pin was nicely described.

Well, now it Looks like this: (see Image)

Where is the ground? And is the function of the pin above or under the number? And why can’t we Count from 1to 10? :S

Secondly:
Since there is no DI module I wanted to implement the Button7S code and with that I can use 7 Switches for example… instead for the Button module that uses 1 socket for 1 Signal…
But I can’t find the socket Information about this module on https://bitbucket.org/ghi_elect/gadgeteer/src/86e246d051bf5e78ec1923b173410c5e47591bf8/Modules/GHIElectronics/ButtonS7/?at=master
Where can I find it?

I hope you folks can help me again like you did already in the past.

Thank you, that already solves my first Problem.
Since pin10 is always ground. then Comes first the number, then the function of the pin. (sounds Logical)

But where to I find now the sockets fro discontinued products?

ok, found via a Distributor the product page for the Button7S
https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/478

But here is the function and pin order again messed up :frowning:
Socket — Y

3.3V
1
ENTER
3
LEFT
5
DOWN
7
FORWARD
9
2
4
BACK
6
UP
8
RIGHT
10

Pin1 that is supposed to be 3.3V got the function “ENTER”

Anf if we chank the System now to “function then Pin*”… then Pin1 id 3.3V… but the Ground on Pin10 is then “RIGHT”…
and I’m pretty sure that connecting the 3.3v to the ground isn’t a smart idea…

And ideas? :3

Looks like they put pin number under the function. 3V3 is pin number 1. Right is 8 Ground is 10.

:S

Now I’m a bit scared… one time it is the function above the number and on a other product it’s below…
GHI, pls fix this… I dun wanna burn my hydra boards -.-

Kind regards,
evul

Take a look at this page for the socket definitions.

https://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/305/gadgeteer-sockets-quick-reference

@ evul - You can be 100% sure that the following 3 pins are always the same:

1 - 3v3
2 - 5V
10 - GND

The rest is according with the socket quick reference document that @ Sprigo and @ andre.m have already provided

@ Josh - Looks like CSS style for socket information is broken/missing. Which created this confusion.

This has been fixed.
