Note:
The signals at the DB-15 on the Apple IIc are not the same as those at the DB-15 end of the Apple III, Apple IIGS, and Macintosh II. Do not attempt to plug a cable intended for one into the other.

Note:
Several of these signals, such as the 14 MHz, must be buffered within about 4 inches of the back panel connector–preferably inside a container directly connected to the back panel.
