This Serial Native Accessory Converter (SNAC) is the USB3 version which allows for the connection of console specific input devices to your MiSTer, connection of original controllers is achieved by using individual adaptors. (purchased separately)

Looking for zero frames of input latency? SNAC provides this when connected to the MiSTer FPGA IO board. This simple solution offers possibly the best experience for gaming enthusiasts or speed runners who require accurate gameplay using original controllers with no lag.

SNAC even works with light guns such as the NES Zapper, Nintendo Super Scope 6 and Sega Master System Light Phaser however an analog CRT screen is required to use a consoles original light gun.

MiSTer SNAC support is enabled in the following cores including NES, SNES, Sega Master System, Genesis / Mega Drive, Mega CD, Atari 7800 and TurboGrafx-16 / TurboGrafx CD. The number of supported cores is growing as SNAC is integrated into more of the official MiSTer project cores.

Each specific SNAC controller adapter only functions with it’s respective core, for example the NES controller adapter is only suitable for use on the NES core.

The Atari adapter also requires an ADC input and a 3.5mm AUX cable if you wish to use the Atari paddle controller. However the Atari joystick controller does not require any additional hardware to function.

The SEGA adapter requires a MiSTer Analog IO v6.1 or Digital IO v1.2 to function correctly, all other IO board versions will require a hardware modification to the MiSTer IO board to support the SEGA adapter.

SNAC is general purpose level shifter for use with MiSTer. If you require more detailed information the SNAC GitHub for MiSTer is located here.

    This item was shipped overseas and arrived quickly. It is a quality component and worked exactly as expected. I’ve used the NES Zapper and the SNES controller and am very happy with the product.
