Pippin dongles are small external devices that connect to a Pippin console's AppleJack port, sometimes through an Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) adapter.
Pippin authentication dongleEdit
Sometimes called "security keys", these bypass the Pippin authentication
process, allowing developers to test CD-ROM
software that have not yet been submitted to Apple Computer
or its partners for review.
Pippin adapter donglesEdit
These adapters allowed ADB devices to be used with a Pippin console's AppleJack port, or vice versa. Some of these products never reached the market as finished goods.
