Raspberry Pi to JAMMA Adapter

The Raspberry Pi to JAMMA  is an adapter that will allow your Raspberry Pi to connect to a JAMMA compatible arcade cabinet for an unbeatable multi-game emulation experience.

Here’s a quick summary of features:

  • Inexpensive – cost still TBD.
  • Works on all Pi devices with a 40 pin header (no Pi 1 A models unfortunately)
  • Low latency control hardware – joystick and button status updates each frame.
  • Straight, one step digital to analog, video and sound conversion for a clean picture and sound.
  • Native video resolution – no scaling or shimmering artifacts with standard res games.
  • Power monitoring and reporting.
  • Auto shutdown on brownout (with a super capacitor bank) will not chew up your SD card. Just turn off your arcade machine and walk away.
  • Images for major Retropie releases will be provided.
  • Opensource drivers and configuration for more customization.
  • Plugs into JAMMA with SF2 kick harness support.
  • All IO done through GPIO header. Nice and clean with no messy wires.
  • Old skool, through hole design with IC sockets for easy repair and troubleshooting.

This project is still in beta testing. Here’s additional documentation:
