Generic DIY Cabinet Adapter


This is a low cost generic adapter kit that consists of a female edge connector for the JAMMA side and a cabinet conversion board for either a 36, 44, or 56 pin cabinet wire harness. You supply your own wire and do your own wire cutting and soldering to create your own custom cabinet adapter.

The adapter board consists of clearly labelled soldering pads on the JAMMA side, holes for routing wires from solder/parts side for a design that minimizes wire clutter ensuring that the wires stay put, and a permanent label area.

The kit will be available in either the 36 pin, 44 pin and 56 versions. While each kit includes a 56 edge connector for the game side of the adapter, the difference will be in the conversion board that’s shipped with the kit.


This is what is included in a 44 pin DIY Cabinet Adapter kit.


Any 36, 44, or 56 pin arcade cabinet that requires simple wire mapping without any additional circuitry.

For instructions on how to assemble these adapters for your conversion, please see the configuration Tutorial here. While this tutorial is for the DIY JAMMA adapters, the same procedure applies here as well.
