SNES Controller Buttons Breakout Board

$10.00 USD

Allows you to break out all the buttons on the SNES controller so you could hook them up to your project or to a handheld console such as the GBA etc. This is a DIY part. Works with the original SNES controller and 8bitdo “Retro Receiver for SNES” product, you could even tear their receiver apart and wire it up to save space.

The button pins are Hi-Z so the device should have a pull-up and the button pins are pulled low when activated. Keys are queried every 1 ms. Works from 2v to 5v. The LED on board will blink at boot and light up when a key is pressed.

Could work on the GBC, GBA, GBA SP, Micro, etc, you would just need to figure out the wiring of the buttons yourself and find a 3.3v source on the board.
