New Version 2 Leo board!
This PCB was made and produced by me and designed by Akihabarashop.jp to help people mod their arcade sticks with the Playstation 3 sixaxis pcb so people can play wireless as easy as possible.
Leo V2 makes your sixaxis pcb common ground so you can have a simpler type of setup inside your stick and be able to add one or even two other pcb´s for a complete common ground setup of three pcb´s in total.
Hooking wires up to the Leo V2 is super easy, just use the terminal blocks on the Leo V2 and screw in the wires and you´re all set.
For help on how to connect the Leo V2 please look at the tutorial pictures below.
Please watch the small video:
When the Sixaxis came out, people said that it wouldn’t be feasible to use them in a dual mod. There were two big deterrents that prevented people from using the Sixaxis in mods. The board not being common ground was the biggest problem. Not having an easy way to wire up the Sixaxis board for a stand alone wireless ps3 stick was the other problem. Advances were made to make it easier to wire up a Sixaxis board, but it didn’t make it common ground so it was still not usable in a dual mod.
Version 1 of Project Leo was designed to tackle those two big issues dealing with the Sixaxis board. The Leo board easily connects to the Sixaxis board through the ribbon connector. It also makes the Sixaxis common ground. This makes it easier to wire up a wireless PS3 stick and makes the Sixaxis possible for use in a dual mod.
Version 2 of Project Leo was designed to make improvements by simplifying the setup. Added screw terminals to easily wire up the joystick and buttons. Made it easier to mount by stacking it over the sixaxis. Added an extra set of contacts to hook up a 3rd pcb to go beyond dual wireless. Simplified hooking up the 360’s triggers.
What started out as a dream, Project Leo is now a reality. The custom boards for version 1 have been sold out and a new batch of version 2 board have been made and are up for sale.
