Electrically, yes. Sun made adapters for the Sun 3 DA15
keyboard/mouse connector, one that let you plug in a Type 2 keyboard
and mouse, and another for a Type 4 keyboard and mouse. Both passive.
I used to use a Type 2 keyboard on a 3/60 through one of these
adapters. A co-worker had a 3/60 which had been fitted with a Type 4
keyboard using one of the other adapters.
Sun did ship some Type 3 mice with RJ11-like plugs that had little
golden studs out the sides so they wouldn't fit the RJ11-like jack
on the back of the Sun 2s. I'm not sure what this intended to do,
keep you from plugging the mouse into a telephone jack perhaps.
