Wrong naming of J1 and J2 in Subconn Connector Installation

The procedure for installing the subconn connector in the Camera Module Technical Manual is as follow:

  1. Insert the connectors into the threaded holes on the rear endcap and thread them in. Tighten with a wrench. [J1 is the male connector, J2 is the female]

  2. Using wire strippers, strip back the black, white, red, green, orange, and blue wires on J1 approximately 1⁄4”. The wires are 20AWG so use the 20AWG multi-stranded setting on the wire strippers.

  3. Using wire strippers, strip back the black, white, red, green, and white/black wires J2 approximately 1⁄4”. The wires are 20AWG so use the 20AWG multi-stranded setting on the wire strippers.

  4. On J2, solder the blue and orange wires to a 3-pin male header. Solder a separate green or red wire to the third pin.

  5. On J1, solder the white/black wire to a 2-pin male header. Solder a separate green or red wire to the second pin.

In Step 4 the white/black wire is not stripped, while Step 7 specify that the J1 white/black is to be soldered onto a pin.

Same with Step 5, the blue pin is not strippe,d while Step 6 specify that J2 blue and orange is to be soldered onto a pin.

So there is some inconsistency between the steps. Is J1 and J2 mixed up in either step 4 & 5 or 6 & 7?

    Yep, there is a mistake in the Camera Technical Manual (v0.3). J2 and J1 should be swapped in steps 6 and 7. Steps 4 and 5 are correct. So, step 6 should reference J1 and step 7 should reference J2. Thanks for catching that!
