Chipnetics Computing, makers of the Sync Slayer and other products have just released kits for the GBS-Control project. Shipping starts at $15 to the US and Canada, with other countries being charged at the going shipping rates and the kit prices are as follows:
- $80 for a complete kit, including WiFi module, software installation, Clockgen mod and power supply.
- $66 for the same kit without the Clockgen mod.
- $10 for just the acrylic case and standoffs.
Prices seem fair enough and I think this is a good way to get started with the project. I’m also happy to see the case sold on its own, as I think building a GBS-C is the perfect project for someone who wants to take one step past beginner mods, as well as familiarize themselves with Arduino software. While I’m still really excited for the “GBS-C AIO Kits” that include SCART input and HDMI output, there’s also a large group of people who just want basic VGA/Component in and VGA out. I usually prefer (just my opinion!) a fully enclosed, 3D-printed case, but these kits certainly do the trick!

As a note, if you’re building your own, I highly recommend getting a high quality power supply like this one: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/wsu050-4000/triad-magnetics
