All 20 Adapters Finished!
All 20 adapters are finally done! Flash chips programmed, parts soldered, CPLDs configured, cables cut-to-length, enclosures all screwed together, and of course... stickers stuck on! All in all, the process went very smoothly. However, I have learned a lot from this process, and there are a definitely improvements that could be made here and there... even if mostly just to simplify the construction process.
Interestingly, the electronics seem spot on, and I'd be hard pressed to find something I could improve upon at this time! However the 3D-printed enclosures leave something to be desired... and would definitely be the first thing I would like to change if and when I decide to make more of these in the future. Not to say they don't do the job, but up close, you can definitely tell that these are hand made!
I will spend the next day or so thoroughly testing every feature of each adapter. After that, they can finally be shipped! I'll post another update when they have all been sent off, so you'll know to start expecting a delivery if you backed the project!
4 adapters at once! Anyone for some N64-style melee?
