About

Home Arcade System, “HAS” for short, is a device that allows you play original arcade game PCBs without the need of owning a real arcade cabinet. Think of it as of a console, only instead of cartridges or discs, you insert the arcade game PCBs. The aim was to design a small and portable device that is still packed with many useful features including a customizable button layout, customizable rapid-fire and hassle-free connectivity with real arcade power supplies.

Features

  • JAMMA, JAMMA+ and CHAMMA compatible
  • DB15 controller ports (NeoGeo compatible, extended to support buttons 5 and 6)
  • Programmable button layout
  • Programmable rapid-fire (VSync synchronized, 6 different fire rates)
  • Buttons 1-6 on the JAMMA connector (buttons 4-6 can be disabled)
  • Buttons 4-6 on the “kick harness” connector
  • Internal memory to store the button layout and rapid-fire settings
  • RGB+CSync video output (75 Ohm impedance)
  • Selectable video Low Pass Filter (new feature added in the HAS V3.3)
  • Video brightness regulation via one knob
  • CSync buffer
  • CSync regeneration (fixes the upper part of the screen in the Taito F3 connected via the XRGB Mini)
  • Selectable CSync level (~0.35Vp-p, 75 Ohm impedance or ~5Vp-p, TTL)
  • HSync and VSync outputs (~5Vp-p, TTL)
  • 8pin mini DIN connector for audio and video (XRGB Mini pinout)
  • 3.5mm jack connector for audio (it overrides the 8pin mini DIN)
  • Audio attenuation (works with all Cave PCBs)
  • Test and Service buttons
  • Voltmeter (selectable +5V/+12V)
  • 6pin power connector
  • Plexi glass case
  • Modular build (the basic functionality can be expanded by using special modules)

The list of features is still subject to change, however it can only change for the better in terms of the number of features and functionality.

The base package includes:

  • a HAS unit
  • a complete plexi glass case (4mm thick plexi glass cover for top and bottom + spacers and bolts)
  • a high quality, 45cm long 18AWG power supply cable
