Slimline LS120 SuperDisk Floppy Drive Adapter PCB - Project and PCB Order Page
This PCB can be used to adapt a Slimline LS120 SuperDisk Floppy drive (model LKM-FC33-5 and others) so that it can be mounted in the 3.5" floppy disk drive bay of a retro PC and connect to its IDE interface. I had removed some of these drives from broken Panasonic PV-SD4090 digital cameras and wanted to see if they could be installed in Pentium 4 era PCs. You can order the PCB or download the design files below. Please note that construction is somewhat challenging, requiring soldering of a JAE Board-to-Board Connector. See here for the alternative minimal PCB version.
Please note: The total width of the constructed unit is 102mm (slightly greater than a standard 3.5" floppy drive) and may not fit in your floppy bay unless it is slightly forgiving on width.
To construct one, you will need:
A slimline LS120 SuperDisk Floppy drive (models LKM-FC33-5, LKM-FE33-5 - probably others will be suitable).
The PCB (You can order a PCB below or download the Gerbers or Kicad 5 design files and have the PCB fabricated yourself.
4x M2.5 6mm mounting screws (e.g. Aliexpress).
JAE Electronics KX14-50K5D-RE Board-to-Board Connector (do not currently appear easily available - extract from a IDE slim drive adapter).
2x20 40-Pin 2.54mm Pitch Straight Box IDC Header Connector (see Mouser Project), or 2x20-Pin header.
Floppy Drive Power Connector (see Mouser Project), or 4-Pin header.
