What are DIN and Mini DIN connectors? How do you usually use it?

1. What are DIN and Mini DIN? DIN is an acronym for "Deutsches Institut für Normung" (German Institute for Standardization), an interface standard developed by them.


DIN connectors come in a variety of sizes, with configurations ranging from 3-pin to 9-pin. Among them, the 5-pin DIN connector is divided into 180°, 240°, and 270° according to the arc from 1 pin to 5 pin.


DIN connectors are widely used in analog audio, AT keyboard, mouse and MIDI applications.


The Mini DIN connector, also developed by the association, is similar to the DIN series, but with a smaller diameter and is divided into several models by pin count and pin orientation.


The most common applications for Mini DIN include S-Video, PS/2 keyboards, and mice.
