Products for building your own retro arcade machine
1 post • Page 1 of 1
The zero delay interface board is designed to allow anyone wanting to build their own arcade cabinet a way to interface arcade style joysticks and buttons to a PC or RaspberryPi. It will allow connection for up to one joystick and 16 buttons (12 users selectable and 4 mode preset). A wiring loom is provided for up to 12 switch contacts with 3.5mm spade connectors and a 5 way cable for joysticks with 5 pin JST type connectors.
The interface board will connect to your PC or Rasberry Pi via a supplied USB cable and will be detected as a generic game controller without requiring any drivers to be installed. It is fully configurable via Windows preferences or via the controller setup in EmulationStation/RetroPi. Multiple interface boards are also supported so creating a two player cabinet is as simple as plugging in a second interface board.
Of course, this interface board is not just limited to retro gaming and can be used for interfacing any N/O switch contacts to your PC.
