The unit is made of a USB to UART adapter based on the CP2104 chip, and a pro micro board based on the atmega32u4 chip. The two parts are connected with soldered wires and are attached with 3D printed parts. This prevents bad contacts and disconnections from happening.
Electrical insulation is ensured by a translucid heat-shrink tubing that allows seeing the on-board LEDs.
A 1-meter micro USB cable is provided to connect the micro USB port to the gaming console.
All parts including the USB cable are tested and selected through a quality assurance process. The assembled unit goes through a final endurance test that checks perfect operation.

Reasons to buy the GIMX adapter
Building a GIMX adapter yourself may be challenging. You may get wrong or defective hardware and loose a few hours figuring out what’s happening, and if this happens, you will loose more time waiting for the replacement part. You may also break the hardware as well due to inappropriate use.
The GIMX adapter is made with parts selected by the GIMX creator. This ensures 100% compatibility with the GIMX software.
Buying an adapter on this shop is a way to support the GIMX project. All the GIMX resources (software, firmware, wiki, …) are provided for free!
