MarkIII cartridge to Megadrive/Genesis adapter image
When I was designing my SMS (non-Japanese) to Megadrive/Genesis cartridge adapter, I learned that the Japanese version of this console used a different connector (44 pins instead of 50). So I decided to also design an adapter for Japanese cartridges.

A 4x SNES to USB adapter built in a beautiful enclosure machined from a solid block of aluminium with a black anodized finish.
SMS cartridge to Megadrive/Genesis adapter image
I had known for a long time that Sega Master System (SMS) games can be played on a Sega Megadrive/Genesis (SMD) console using a simple 50 to 64 pin adapter, and thought a few times about making one. So when I was told my SNES to SMD controller adapter did not work when a SMS game was being played, it was all I needed as an excuse to design and build an SMS to SMD adapter.
New entry in the NES mods page: Using SNES controllers on a NES image
It has been known for a long time that using SNES controllers on a NES was possible and easy to do using simple wiring. So this is nothing new, but since I recently built such an adapter, I just thought I'd document it on this page.

About me

Hello, I'm Raphaël Assénat. I live near Montreal, a city located in Quebec province, Canada. I have two big passions in life: Computers and Electronics. Those two disciplines allows me to quench my desire to create things, my curiosity, and my desire to learn. I'm always working on many projects at the same time and I dont have enough time to do all the projects I'd like. But fortunately, once I begin working on a project, I rarely stop before it's finished.

Programming is my main hobby, and I like to do it using C and assembler. Preferably, on Linux or Unix platforms. I'm not interested at all by windows programming. What I like the most is when I have the chance to work on projects involving both programming and electronics. For instance, writing software which controls external circuitry designed by me, or even better, programming microcontrollers.

Other than computing and programming, I like to play piano and enjoy relaxing by playing RPG video games. (And thus many projects on this site are related to video games...)
