Roomba 960 PCB Pictures

Postby ps0001 » August 1st, 2018, 4:33 pm

When I was researching the USB circuit for the 9xx series, I was surprised to learn I couldn't find any detailed pictures of the PCB's, so I took a 960 apart and took pictures myself. Interestingly, it seems that the motherboard is completely different than the one in the 980 Vic documented. I don't know if this is a newer revision, or if the 960 simply uses a different board than the 980.

Another interesting thing to note is the test/debug port on the camera unit's main board. It's an edge connector on the upper left of my pictures. I believe you can access it without disassembling the robot by simply removing a silicone dust cover inside the bin bay.

Here is the complete set of pictures: https://imgur.com/a/oHvZS9Z

Your board is different than the one in my 960. I wonder if they are interchangeable!

Hmm, that's interesting. Can you compare yours to the pictures Vic posted of a 980 board? I think his are in a thread titled "Under the hood of the 980", or something similar. I wonder how many different major revisions there are.
