Nice to see one post has help people so much. KICAD is a nice program and I've started to design what I need, but I've also found some cheap tsop48 pcb that will do the job for my prototype and if it work out then I will have my own made up
tis Better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all

I blame spelling errors and my writing skills or lack of...... On fred!!!!!! My blood clot (yes I really did name it lol)

A post that gets people talking is always a good post. I found KiCad a bit counter intuitive at first but have got used to it now. It's a great and very powerful program.

I'm just glad I only have to deal with single sided pcb instead of dual as that would be hard lol I've got the tsop48 chips I need and the wire plus the switches, restorers but if it work I will change the restorers for smd ones and fitted onto the pcb design

That's the one I've ordered and if it works then I will redesign the pcb and add some LED's.

Loads of company already make what I'm planning ;) but one sells them for almost £50(all singing and dancing) one sells for about £20(basic) mine less the £1 with out the chip and £4 with the chip ;)

Very good pricing, enough mark up to turn a profit I hope. Listening to the Amp Hour the other day, the guy who runs DIYDrones (Chris Anderson) said they use x2.6 the bill of materials which gives them 40% mark up them 40% mark up for distributors. Seems like a good way to go. I would advise against just going heads up with China on pricing and they'll win in the end!!

just received most of what i need, just need to do some testing with some LED's and of-cause fit the chip and see if it works 8-) if it does then move onto designing my own pcb.

I'm hoping to RRP them at about £9-£10 so everyone involved makes something and will market it as a no frills, low cost, fully working device.

o and if anyone can guess what im making i will send the first person to post the right answer a free one ;)

They should fit ok on your CS-18. Pretty impressive considering mate!

Thanks, I'm lucky that I'm ambidextrous so small things like soldering is fine I just can't hold anything with my right hand heavier then a cup. Plus my achi is used on this kind of thing to get it up and keep it to a nice 180 so I hardly need to do anything with the iron ;) just add solder and drag, flux is my best friend when doing this lol I've already sold 20+ of them.


Think its about time I let everyone know what it is.

Its a dual nand for xbox 360 phat/slim so you can play online and still have your RGH\homebrew
Can also be used on a ps3 and wii so I've heard but not tried
Cost to me less then £1 cost of other teams selling more or less the same thing from £20-£50 (ok they have more capability) but it works. I will post some pic's of how its fitted soon
