GBS-Control Cases & Complete Kits For Sale

Chipnetics Computing, makers of the Sync Slayer and other products have just released kits for the GBS-Control project.  Shipping starts at $15 to the US and Canada, with other countries being charged at the going shipping rates and the kit prices are as follows:

  • $80 for a complete kit, including WiFi module, software installation, Clockgen mod and power supply.
  • $66 for the same kit without the Clockgen mod.
  • $10 for just the acrylic case and standoffs.

Prices seem fair enough and I think this is a good way to get started with the project.  I’m also happy to see the case sold on its own, as I think building a GBS-C is the perfect project for someone who wants to take one step past beginner mods, as well as familiarize themselves with Arduino software.  While I’m still really excited for the “GBS-C AIO Kits” that include SCART input and HDMI output, there’s also a large group of people who just want basic VGA/Component in and VGA out.  I usually prefer (just my opinion!) a fully enclosed, 3D-printed case, but these kits certainly do the trick!

Order yours here and make sure to set the drop-down menu options as you prefer:  https://www.tindie.com/products/chipnetics/modified-gbs8200-rgb-to-vga-converter/

As a note, if you’re building your own, I highly recommend getting a high quality power supply like this one:  https://www.arrow.com/en/products/wsu050-4000/triad-magnetics
