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.
