this board doesnt slot into a nes connector it slots into the mega drive/genesis connector on the retrode
I am the very author of the NES plugin prototype board, and I assure you that it does
slot into both the Retrode and a NES 72-pin connector
The board has two edge connectors on opposite sides. The one for the Retrode is shorter, hence a corner needs to be cut out of the board, giving it a thick L-shape.
You need two such boards per NES plugin prototype - one plugs into the Retrode, the other into the NES connector. The pair of boards must be connected by wires and resistors as described in the schematics I posted along with the board design.You would know all this, had you taken a look at those schematics1.
The information you posted on OSH Park is thus incomplete and misleading
for potential buyers of the NES plugin prototype PCBs.I demand that you remove the NES plugin prototype board design from OSH Park
, because the PCBs produced from it by OSH Park will be useless2
In particular, the .sch file associated with the .brd file contains a piece of text describing this, and I even drew a picture below it. All in the "info" layer (97). (Added:)
It's also explained in the description text of the .brd file.2
I just tried and failed to force a 1.6 mm PCB edge into a NES connector. It's far too thick.
