GPIO and Arduino cables/connectors

Hi everyone!

I purchased my “previously enjoyed” GameSH> maybe 3 weeks ago now and love it.
I had been going through the forums, and have found everyone to be super helpful.

I wanted to ask if there are additional cables for the GPIO pins and the two 15 pin connectors on the Arduino/Keypad.

If there aren’t additional cables, could I get info on the connectors to be able to make my own?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure I understand what you mean
does this help?

Sorry for the confusion.

I think what I’m really looking for is specs of the connectors.

So the GPIO and arduino connectors are JST type, but I am looking for part numbers so I can find mating connectors.

Then I can make my own JST to Dupont cables

I´ve made this spreadsheet long time ago Gameshell Cables - Google Sheets

Hope it helps.

With a caliper and this JST connector - Wikipedia you could correlate the other connectors on that sheet and know the part.

Thanks again for the help guys. I was inspired to go ahead and make some keyboard expansion/GPIO cables. (Final picture first)

I was able to figure what size the connector needed to be, and found some wires to go with it.

Top wire was the one i purchased where both ends had the crimp to go into the JST connector. Then I cut them in half and added the DuPont crimp and then a housing.


Below are some more pictures I took while making the wires.





Just wanted to share what I had been working on for the Gameshell lately.
