apple attachment unit interface
hardware, networking
(AAUI) A 14-position, 0.050-inch-spaced ribbon contact connector. Early Power Macs and Quadras had an AAUI (Apple Attachment Unit Interface) port (rectangular shaped) for Ethernet, which requires a transceiver. To use twisted pair cabling, you would need to get a twisted pair transceiver for the computer with an AAUI port. Some Power Mac computers had both an AAUI and RJ-45 port; you can use one or the other, but not both.
