is there a circuit diagram of the mini usb connection?


Here is a link to the datasheet for the FTDI FT232R chip that is used in the iEXOS 100. This datasheet has reference schematics for the connector pinout and how it is connected to the chip.

The schematic for our PMC-Eight systems is proprietary and confidential information and is not generally shared with our customers or vendors. I am happy to answer any reasonable question about the design of the hardware without divulging certain design details. 

We do not at this time consider the electronics in the iEXOS 100 mount as user serviceable. The PMC-Eight system delivered with the G11 and EXOS 2 mounts does have a replaceable Microchip RN-131G module daughter board that can be replaced by our customers that feel competent to do that, but that is all we have currently that is user serviceable.
