Make a JAMMA board from a Raspberry Pi

Interesting thread over on AussieArcade by a user by the name dee2er who has taken a Raspberry Pi and turned it into a working JAMMA board. JAMMA, which stands for Japan Arcade Machine Manufacturers Association, is the type of connector that became a standard in the mid 1980’s, which allowed arcade cabinets to be simply upgraded by installing a new JAMMA board.

What has been done is to turn a Raspberry Pi into a board that can be connected to the JAMMA connector on an existing cabinet, and therefore allow it to run the games on the Raspberry Pi.

The thread was started some time ago but the the development has continued with the latest update recently shared.
