nooo.. I do believe those high  speed signals wouls need to run on coax for
the length they're designed to run - I think it's ribbon/coax -I'm guessing
fairly expensive stuff. (I gather this from previous SDI discussion ;)
 Pinouts help, bit still doesn't tell me it it's a 1:1 to my RA73 drive or
if it needs swapping etc :( it's possible for short distance ~50 ohm ribbon
cable might work  a close enough match to 34 pin flippy ribbon cable sets?
might be worth an experment - now to look up pinouts on the RA73 drive ;)
everything's transformer isolated, but I'm not sure about mysterious drive
drive selects..
