Need pinout for iMac's iR sensor (iSight)

RE: iMac G5 (iSight)

IR part: 820-1884-A

Need pinouts for J1 and J2 (I presume alternate solder points).

As best I can tell, the iR sensor from the iMac is USB. A while back (before I had one with a built in camera or iR, I saw a USB pinout.)

Anyway, I now have a dead iMac with iSight and iR sensor. I'm looking for the iR sensors pinout so I can convert it to a standard USB cable and jam it into a PowerMac G5 tower (which never had an iR sensor.)

Any help would be appreciated.

+ research


Do you think this board is still supported in modern (10.8+) OSes? Should I buy this, or the more expensive MacBook Pro IR board?
