Neo Geo Slammer - MVS Console Kit [Completed]October 5, 2020
Currently, Neo Geo AES systems are extremely expensive, and the barrier of entry into the world of Neo Geo is prohibitive for most. Herein is a kit to make your own Neo Geo console from original MVS boards. This kit will work with Neo Geo MVS boards with model number MV1C.
The Neo Geo Slammer kit is unique in that it supports Super Nintendo controllers in place of Neo Geo controllers, making it much more affordable to get into Neo Geo. The board has two ATTINY-2313 ICs that turn the serial data from a SNES controller into parallel data, without any lag!

You must supply your own MV1C board, there are many places online to procure them. I do offer a fully assembled kit wherein I will procure the board, and do the whole assembly; but please allow up to 6 weeks for this as they are made to order.
Add a premium quality wall wart - 5 volts rated at 3 amps. Otherwise you can use your own power supply (2 amps is sufficient), just ensure it has a barrel-connector with mating diameters 2.10mm (inside dia.), 5.50mm (outside dia.), which is a pretty common dimension.
