I may have already presented you SeeedStudio they are a chinese webstore, selling a lot of stuff made by electronic homebrewer for electronic homebrewer. You will find there a lot of prebuild card with microcontroller, components, kits, … and they have too some services like Fusion that allow you to make batch of PCB at the chinese cost (i.e. low), but with as much quality as possible for such a service!
So, why I made this post? Not to make free ad to SeeedStudio (even if I like them) but because they have another service: Wish that like the name seems to be, it’s here to make wish, and try to make them happen. I recently made a wish, one that could help me, but I think other people too, about some custom connector that a lot of people use(d) everyday, the one that was made by Game Console maker like Nintendo or Sony. Apart for the NES, there is currently no 3rd party sourceable connector for SNES, PS1/PS2 gamepads. (and lot of other one) The only current way is to take them from broken (or even working game console) or if you are lucky find an extension cord and cut it to get the femmal connector.
So if like me you need a reliable source of such component, please vote for my wish and spread the word around you!
Hi everyone, it was a long time since I not post something about the Ikari01/Maximilian Rehkopf SD2SNES project from which I build my own board from scratch!
As I suspected, soldering BGA is not something easy, and I went into lots of problem with this chip, from completely not working to as know working a bit, but not completely… Continue reading SD2SNES Update→
Saddly, the NVidia 8600M GT of my main computer decided to die last Saturday, so I’m nearly computer less actually, and my project can’t follow the path I wanted. I can only work a little on my project during my work time. (Yes, that’s not a good thing to do, I know ;))
