PU-22 PsNee modchip installation diagram

This is my favorite version of the PlayStation 1. It’s in newer systems, so the lasers are more likely to still be in good condition, but the system still has both the serial and parallel ports on the back. This board was used primarily with the SCPH-7500 series of systems.

  • Pin 8 – DATA
  • Pin 9 – GATE_WFCK

PU-22 PsNee installation diagram

Above is the diagram for the PU-22.

This diagram is fairly straightforward. Be careful when soldering to the capacitor that connects to VCC and GND. In particular, the GND point can easily be bridged to nearby pins/pads.

Installation tips

Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into the PU-22.

  • You don’t need to connect pins one and two of the ATtiny45 chip. Just desolder the wire.
  • Use a multimeter to probe around for alternative VCC and GND points closer to where you position your chip for a cleaner installation.
  • Placing the chip on top of the chip in between SUBQ, SQCK, GND, and VCC is a good spot.
  • Watch out for solder splatter when you are desoldering the metal shield on top of the board. It isn’t necessary to put it back on, but I always do.

I don’t have a vcc called pin on my Arduino nano is there a different name for it?
