8-pin min DIN lead and ACC connections to the FT817
I made use of a 2m lead with a 8-pin mini din plug on each end as they go for only a few pounds on e-bay. My intention was to cut the lead in two so then I would have a couple of useful ready-wired leads. However the leads I purchased were a 'cross-over' type so the coloured wires that go to one of the 8-pin plugs do not mirror all the pins of the other plug (see here for more details). The diagram below shows the FT817 socket pins / connections used in this project which include 0V (GND), + V power and the Rx RS232 input to the FT817 (which goes to the RS232 Tx of the PIC):
