Here is my idea of interfacing the ol’ skool nintendo controllers to be wireless….there is hope.
I finally found the pin layout of an NES controller
+----> Power (white)
5 +---------+ 7
| x x o \
| o o o o |
4 +------------+ 1
| | | |
| | | +-> Ground (brown)
| | +----> Pulse (red)
| +-------> Latch (orange)
+----------> Data (yellow)
Now the timing diagram of how the signals are sent
Now how to send these signals over the air?
|Serial Transmitter||Serial Receiver|
The transmitter will be interface to the controller using the serial port. And when I apply the power everything should be jus going as normal.
Time to bring my nintendo system to waterloo and acquire the parts to make the circuit.
I dont think i should be super hardcore and try to make everything from scratch. I think I will jus buy the circuit kits (wankstas styles).
