Please read the entire description! This listing is for the BOARD only! Unlike the smaller adapter boards, you do NOT need any 18-pin headers to use this board, and you don't need to remove the existing EPROM!
Please note this is only recommended for boards that have ONE 36-pin ROM socket. If you are going to use them on boards with a 32-pin ROM socket, make sure the ROM chip you are installing is only a maximum of 8 MBit large for compatibility.

This is a custom PC board I made that allows you to use the popular 27C160 EPROMs to refurbish your old SNES games, or put your own homebrew games on original hardware. The 27C160 is a 42-pin device, but the SNES EPROM socket is only 36 pins large. This board is similar to the small adapter boards I offer, but you can use this board without having to remove the original ROM! Just clip the /OE pin on the original ROM and bridge the pin to VCC.

When put into the board properly, it fits nicely inside the cartridge. Note that it will not fit inside the cartridge with every existing SNES boards, but it will for most. There must be at least approximately 2 centimeters clearance to the top of the cartridge. In general, if your board only has one ROM and one SRAM chip, it should fit ok.

Please note that this board does not work on boards with two or more 8 Mbit ROM chips without some rewiring. If your board uses two 16 Mbit ROM chips, and there is room for the adapter board, this will work ok.

Notes:
You may need to trim back "mousebites" on the PCB to fit the EPROM in the socket (see picture).
Trim the backside pins on any chip that interferes with the board to ensure the adapter board is close to the donor. Try fitting it in the cartridge before soldering to be sure.

PLEASE CHECK if your adapter will fit before you solder anything! I have not personally encountered any problems but I do not have every type of board to test. If you are having problems, send me pictures, the board number, and we'll figure it out!

Please, check out my website listed above for extremely detailed instructions on how to construct a game of your own, and if you have any questions, contact me!
Message or email me for larger quantity inquiries. If you need more stock, please contact me - I might have some extra that's not reflected here.

These boards are the best! I almost don't want to let anyone know how awesome these are so they don't sell out as fast! After using these boards, the older methods feel like they are from the stone age or something! Nick is a pleasure, if there is a problem, Yo he'll solve it.... just like Vanilla Ice! But seriously give this guy your business! He will answer questions, right any wrongs, maybe even give a kidney ??... Thanks man! keep it up!

Everything perfect. The boards have amazing quality at a really fair price. Very clear instructions and the easy processing with these boards make these must haves for everyone who is interested in making his own SNES games. 5/5 would order again!
