RetroPad32 USB Input Module

The RetroPad32 USB Input Module is a plug-in device that connects to the DB15 port of the RetroPad32 Adapter and opens the world of USB input devices to the classic and modern console systems!

With the USB Input Module and the RetroPad32 Adapter you'll be able to connect most USB controllers, keyboards and arcade sticks to your favorite classic and modern consoles, including:

- USB XBOX 360 Controller
- USB PC Keyboard
- PS3 Dualshock 3 (USB)
- XBOX 360 Wireless Controller via USB Wireless Receiver
- PS4 Dualshock 4 (USB)
- XBOX Classic via USB adapter
- 8bitdo Wireless USB Adapter
- XBOX One Controller via USB
- Switch Pro Controller via USB

Lots of X360, PS3 and PS4 USB Arcade Sticks should be compatible out of the box. Get in touch if you find one that doesn't work and I will try to add support to it!

How to use:

1 - Unplug the USB Input Module from the RetroPad32 if it's plugged in
2 - Connect the USB device to the USB Input Module
3 - Connect external 5V source to the USB Input Module and set the "Ext. 5V" switch to the "On" position (if required, see below)
4 - Connect the USB Input Module to the RetroPad32 Adapter
5 - Enjoy!

The USB Input Module requires an external 5V source if the RetroPad32 Adapter is connected to the following consoles*:

- Wii via Wiimote
- Wii via Game Cube controller port
- Nintendo Game Cube
- Nintendo 64
- Playstation 1
- Playstation 2
- Modern systems (XBOX 360, XBOX One, Playstation 4) through PS2 controller adapter

For all the other systems, no external power is required since the 5V is provided by the console itself.

* Some USB controllers, arcade sticks and keyboards work fine with 3.3V so, for those, an external 5V power supply might not be necessary at all!

The RetroPad32 USB Input Module includes an USB to barrel jack power cable. Options for external 5V source include any available USB port, a 5V USB wall charger or a power bank.

If using external 5V source, make sure the "Ext. 5V" switch is set to the "On" position. If not using external 5V source, set it to the "Off" position.
