The unit is composed 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 glued together. 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 test that checks perfect operation.
The firmwares that can be loaded are listed here: link. The adapter gets loaded with the EMUG29PS4 firmware. Make sure to leave a note when ordering if you wish another firmware to be loaded (at the “Checkout” step, in the “Order Notes” text area).

Reasons to buy the GIMX adapter
Building a GIMX adapter yourself may be challenging. You may get 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, as well as 100% compatibility with the future GIMX software and firmware versions. It will be compatible with all new features, unless there is a hardware limitation that prevents it.
