Meaning of APPLE ATTACHMENT UNIT INTERFACE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(AAUI) A 14-position, 0.050-inch-spaced ribbon contact connector. Early power macintosh 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 macintosh computers had both an AAUI and rj-45 port; you can use one or the other, but not both.

The pin-out is:
