MP07-IONA-US JVS Interface v3.11
The MP07-IONA-US is created by Mellow PCB from Japan. It is a small board that allows for the direct connection of USB gamepads and sticks to JVS based arcade systems.
JVS systems are generally equipped with a power supply, video and audio outputs already. Usually you would need to hook up a I/O Board such as the Capcom or SEGA I/O or Taito Fast I/O for controls, this is where the IONA board steps in to save the day. Simply power it with a USB-C cable and you've got access for 2-Players via USB. There's no need for a Supergun when playing outside of a cabinet anymore!
Device has been tested as compatible with SEGA Naomi, Taito Type X/X², Namco System 2x6, exA-Arcadia and more!
Gamepads supported include Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4 and PC as well as some PS3 and Switch controllers with more support on the way via free user-upgradable firmware (you can request controller support by filling out a form direct to Mellow PCB).
Also, for example you're able to play Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram on Naomi with a Tanita Twinstick or DeathCrimson OX on Naomi with a PS3 Guncon 3 and much more!
There's also Rapid-fire and Custom Button Layout features in this jam-packed tiny device.
Due to the complexity of JVS and the hundreds of various controllers able to be used we do not supply any support or compatibility guarantees for this product.
This latest revision of the PCB (Version 3.11 has the following improvements)
- Features an external RS485 chip to mitigate adjusting the signal level *
- Additional JVS port for daisy chaining
- Only works with Firmware v2.11+
- Same Size / Layout as previous version (fits existing cases)
*In the previous versions of the device, users needed to have the right "signal level adjust" configuration for some systems; such as later Naomi later models or Namco System2x6 boards. With this new version, people don't need to care for this setting as it's automatically adjusted and works without needing to set.
PCB is preloaded with latest Firmware v2.14.
