Rear electronic adapter board for converting to a different controller? (power jack, USB, power switch)

Recommended Posts


I'm thinking of changing the controller board for a different type and I was thinking about making a little board to keep the original connectors, switch to reuse your existing power supply and pass through the signal & power to the new controller.


I've mocked up the idea in a 2D CAD.


I didn't find anything that does this yet. Is there something available that already does this or should I just design my own?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
