        I'm planning on making a jig to hold and charge an iPad.  Specifically, it will hold it in the landscape orientation, and charge it via the smart connector. 

         

        Where can I find the electrical specification for the smart connector?

         

        The specific questions I'm trying to answer are:

         

        What voltage(s) and current(s) do I need to provide?  (Secondarily, does it negotiate for higher currents like the USB standard?)

         

        What is the communication interface?  As it's only 3 pins total, I'm thinking it's either a bidirectional communication via 1 pin, or it's modulated somehow to reuse pins. 

         

        What is the required magnetic setup (polarities, strengths) to align the iPad to the Smart Connector?
