View Full Version : Atomiswave recommendations?

02-25-2015, 10:33 AM

I bought an atomiswave board recently from Muppet (still in transit, thanks man!!) and I am planning on using it with the stereo sound output and the VGA output, connected to a PC monitor. My questions are:

1. What is the best PSU to use with this? from what I've read, this board requires +12V and +5V, which PSU would you recommend? getting an ATX PSU? or getting an arcade PSU? I've considered the picoPSU, are they good for this?

2. Which kind of connector does the stereo output use? I saw in the manual it's some kind of 10-pin cable, but no clue if it's proprietary or I can get it off the shelf.

3. I plan to get Metal Slug 6 for this, but it's an expensive game (on ebay at least). Are the boots 100% the same, or do they have issues?

Any of those PSU's will work as long as it has enough "juice" to support it.
I would go with an arcade PSU anyday.

Can't really answer the rest.

It is a proprietary connector, but you can tap line level audio from the motherboard, I have a little headphone jack on mine.

All the boots work 100% fine, with the exception of some early Sam Shodown 6 boots had some minor glitching.

you need: "JST 10-pin PHD connector"

So you go to www.jst.com , type in PHD and this is what you find:


remember you need the pins also

PHDR-10VS housing
SPHD-002T-P0.5 depends on wires size
