  • PS/2 connectors - These connection types have 6 pins and a keying block. This connector has become an industry standard for connecting mice and keyboards although was first used on PS2 consoles.

  • 8-pin Mini Din - These connectors have 3 pins at the top and bottom and 2 in the middle. They are commonly used on portable video devices and projectors.
