Switch-less USB selector for PS3+360 "Imp"


based on the work of Toodles I've setup a atmel version of his Imp board. See this thread.

Here's an extarct of his post:

Most PS3+Xbox360 sticks now use a DPDT toggle switch to select which system is to be used. This setup works well, but requires a DPDT switch be purchased, and the case modified so the switch can be installed. I had mentioned previously that it would be possible to use an existing button to select with a small amount of electronic.

Thus means:

- plugin in the controller and press no button -> xbox360
- plugin in the controller and press guide button (example) -> ps3

No case modification needed anymore !!!

Here's the design. Feel free to comment.
