Nintendo VS to JAMMA Adapter

Description

Allows you to use your Nintendo VS games in a JAMMA cabinet or a super gun device.
 
The Nintendo VS System was an arcade platform based on the hardware of the NES / Famicom home consoles. It was supposed to be a cost effective way to retrofit existing Nintendo arcade cabinets and as a result these PCBs output inverted video and audio level sound.
 
This adapter has a built in video inverter and a sound amplifier for full compatibility with  the JAMMA standard. A set of jumpers allow the adapter to be configured to display and control either the Master or the Slave romset on the Nintendo VS PCB.
