Daewoo Lightpen connector
Sanyo Lightpen connector

The connector for Sanyo's lightpen is the EB-DIO M06 (female) and SE-DIO M06 (male). These connectors are the same as used for PS/2 keyboards or mice (But not electronically compatible). The Lightpen cartridge does not have connector, as the pen is permanently attached.

The connector used for the Daewoo lightpen is a 5-pin DIN.

Machines with lightpen connector

This connector can be found on only a few MSX computers, manufactured by Daewoo or Sanyo. They all have a built-in lightpen interface (it still needs to be checked for the Sanyo MPC-27 and MPC-X).
