The pic on the left in that article is a V1.7. Aren’t those chips and such SMD? I’m not as familiar with that as you and others. My FD2 from 98 is through hole with no PCB and wires running to everything but all 4 OCD’s I’ve owned v1.2, v1.3 and v1.7 all looked like the one in the pic. Jacks and switch separate but everything else mounted on PCB.
