New Version for ArcadeForge MAK Supergun PCB

New Supergun MAK PCB

I`ve made a new version for my supergun MAK project. The former version was MAK strike.

The new version has comes in with a lot of improvements and new features.

All the user interface is now reachable from the side of the PCB. This allows to make much more nicer enclosure and improves the usability.

Improved SCART support is now designed. It switches automatically to RGB and AV mode.

This new supergun PCB supports Stereo Audio and Mono audio. It has a switch one can select between Stereo or Mono.

My supergun offers sound interface via Audio SCART and two audio chinch cinch plugs.

Since nearly all of the arcade PCBs or Neogeo MVS system deliver pre-amped sound signals one has to tale care not to harm their TV equipment. Most user try not to turn their sound volume to max hoping that their home entertainment equipment will not damaged. I`ve now foreseen an Audio Attentuation Circuit  in this supergun that protect connected media gear.

All signals and power supply are available via 5mm Screw Terminals.

Second Power Supply Plug is a standard PC Power Supply Unit plug.

On and off switch status  will be indicated by a power LED.

Besides the screw terminals this supergun MAK offer NEOGEO compatible controller ports.

One has five buttons to controll the arcade PCB via the supergun pcb : START Playe 1, COIN, START Player 2, Test and Service Tactile Press Button.

The colors can be adjusted by using RGB 3 channel potentiometer with one axle. This 3 channel potentiometer can be controlled by one axle. Mostly all know supergun uses three different potentiometer. Thus makes it difficult to achieve a clear white level on the screen. By using only one axle for all colors at same time this clear white level is no issue anymore. 

But the best is coming now: This supergun PCB offer a 5V voltage display. Yes, simply this. Benefit from this new feature and tune the 5V accordingly to your arcade PCB. There is no need for messing around with an external Multimeter.

The new ArcadeForge Supergun MAK comes with extended 6 Button Jamma Pinout.

Look out for the first assembled version.
