GBA/GBC/DMG ClockxControl

$19.00$27.00

With this tiny device (18x12x1.6mm GBA/GBC, 21x17x1.6mm DMG) you can adjust your GameBoy Advance’s, GameBoy Colour’s or DMG’s clock to make it slower or faster by holding down select and pressing the L & R shoulder buttons for the GBA or B & A for the GBC/DMG. Hold select down for 2 seconds to revert back to normal speed. We have a some different firmware available for different speeds or select custom firmware and let us know the 8 options you would like (for a higher price).

Using a faster clock may not work with all games or flash carts, check the list below. Most genuine game cartridges should work. GBA flash carts don’t seem to work when trying to go faster than 1x as they crash, going slower should work. More games seem to work on the GBC at 1.5x max on a flash cart. For the DMG, it will only respond to button presses if the game is querying the Dpad, e.g on the boot screen with the logo scrolling – it won’t respond to any changes.

Works with the GBA FP IPS screen. If you have an AGB-001 or original DMG screen, when slowing down you will likely see some screen flicker. Installation requires a hot air gun to remove the existing crystal (for GBA/GBC, soldering iron is fine for DMG) and requires soldering. Consumes about 12mA of additional current and when the GBA/GBC/DMG is overclocked, it too will use 40-60mA more.

Installation (GBA)

1. Use a hot air gun to de-solder the existing crystal. Be careful not to remove any of the near by components.

2. Place the device as shown with some double sided tape or a little bit of blu-tack to insulate it from the GBA board and use the wiring below.

Device V+ to GBA SI
Device V- to GBA GND
Device CLK to GBA CK1
Device 1 to GBA TP2 (Select) or TP3 (Start)
Device 2 to GBA TP9 (L trigger)
Device 3 to GBA TP8 (R trigger)

Installation (GBC)

1. Use a hot air gun to de-solder the existing crystal. Be careful not to remove any of the near by components.

2. Solder a wire to the P12 (Select), P11 (B) and P10 (A) pads. Route the wires upwards. You can use thin tape so they stay in place and don’t cover any screw holes.

3. Install the Gameboy colour PCB back into the shell. Solder a red and blue wire to the capacitor shown and another wire to the crystal pad. You can route the 3 button wires under the LCD ribbon cable for a neater solution (but be careful!).

4. Place the device as shown with some double sided tape or a little bit of blu-tack to insulate it from the GBA board. Trim the wires and solder them into place. You can install some kapton tape on the top to help hold it in place.

Installation (DMG)

Coming soon

1. Use soldering iron or hot air gun to de-solder the existing crystal. Be careful not to remove any of the near by components.

2. Solder a wire to the FFC connector on pins 4, 7, 8, 9.

3. Solder a wire to the reset pin (30) on the Gameboy connector.

3. Place the device on top of the CPU with some double sided tape or a little bit of blu-tack. Trim the wires and solder them into place. You can install some kapton tape on the top to help hold it in place.

Device V+ to Capacitor +
Device V- to Capacitor GND
Device CLK to X0
Device pad 1 to FFC connector pin 7
Device pad 2 to FFC connector pin 4
