Griffin iMate is an ADB to USB converter. The example below is based on a Cypress CY7C63413-PVC USB microcontroller. The iMate is a discontinued product.


The iMate contains an undocumented button cell battery, of type CR1225. The exact purpose of this battery is not known, as Griffin have never acknowledged its existence.[1] When this battery becomes depleted, the iMate may fail to function.[2] The case is of the snap type, and it can be prised open to allow the battery to be replaced.
