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

Recommended Posts

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


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?
