XHE-3 equivalent PCB kit

A kit for building your own XHE-3 equivalent adapter.

$19.99 CAD
(approx. $14.99 USD )

Product Description:
The XHE-3 was an adapter designed for using MSX controllers and joystick on a PC Engine console. It also supported the use fo an analog controller, the XE1-AP.

The XHE-3 being rare and expensive, we made an equivalent design which we sell as a kit. All the required components are included in the kit, except the mini-DIN cable (which connects to the console) and an enclosure which you will have to provide. You must also know how to solder.

We may make a ready-to-use version in the future. If you are interested, please contact us to let us know.

The component list, schematics, additional pictures and technical details on how the XHE-3 (and this equivalent) works are available on raphnet.net.

IMPORTANT: This is not a complete list. If your controller or game does not appear here, it simply means that we did not get the chance (or the idea) to test it, or that no one let us know that it works.
