Good ol' Babelfish. Not sure about the bit in red though, ouch:

JammASD is the newest interface of the ASD electronic and currently represents the complete device piu on the market preplace to the interfacciamento between personal a computer and a system with connector standard JAMMA. Thanks to JammASD it will not be piu necessary to effetturare weldings, wirings, regulations in order to compensate marks them "outgoing weak person" from the cards video! JammASD not only previews all the classic necessities of the retrogamers but it is pushed beyond! Integral in fact an audio amplifier stereo, connector RCA in order to connect lightgun and a system of protection of the monitor from the potentially harmful frequencies. all in an integrated device completely riprogrammabile (thanks to the practical interface software) and customizzabile second the requirements of every plan! JammASD is a product 100% Italian, been born from the daily requirements of the customers of ArcadeItaliaŽ and guaranteed from the soddifazione of those who gia they use it.

It's in Etalian :rolleyes

"outgoing weak person"? :unsure

LOL!

I gather this is a jamma harness straight into an encoder that goes to the PC, aka no wiring if you want to MAME an arcade cabinet.

Considering you can get an arcade cabinet < $50 and it costs several weeks and a few hundred dollars to build your own... it sounds like a good idea to me!

Looks to be the same thing as the Ultimarc JPAC ?

But the JammaSD is riprogrammabile and customizzabile! :lol

FULL TRANSLATION

The definitive solution for your Arcade cabinet!

JammASD is the newest interface of the ASD electronic and currently represents the complete device PUI on the market preplace to the interfacing between personal a computer and a system with connector standard JAMMA.

Thanks to JammASD it will no longer be necessary to carry out splicings, wirings, regulators in order to compensate marks them "outgoing weak signals"? (ED? not sure of "signals", translation said "person")" from the Video card!

JammASD not only includes all the classic necessities of the retrogamers but it is pushed beyond!

Integral in fact is a stereo audio amplifier, RCA connector in order to connect lightgun and a system of protection of the monitor from the potentially harmful frequencies - all in an integrated device completely re-programmable (thanks to the practical interface software) and customizabile secondly to the requirements of every plan!

JammASD is a product 100% Italian, been born from the daily requirements of the customers of ArcadeItaliaŽ and guaranteed from the satisfaction of those who use it.

The JammASD system just has to be inserted into the Jamma connector of your cabinet (along with all the supplied cables- included in the equipment) then to the video card, audio PS/2 connector of the keyboard.

To this point.... you are ready in to play!!

If your cabinet's local power source was not present it will be necessary to supply to card with 12Volt DC; the easiest way is to splice into the PC's supply using a molex connector; this DC power feeding is not necessary in the case the audio amplifier is not used.
The default of JammASD it makes an association standard between characters of the keyboard and keys of your cabinet, this association can have varied to piacimento (ED: programming software?) thanks to the appropriate software supplied in equipment JammASD previews the store connection (to low tension and in continuous flow) with absorptions until 100mA.


In case your load is inductive (es. a coil) will have to insert also a diode valve in the parrallel ie a freewheeling diode)

Characteristically - The heart of JammASD is a powerful microcontroller (1) who takes care itself of the allocation of the keys and the communication with the PC through door PS/2.

According to microcontroller (2) it arranges the two video sync in an only composite sync and controls frequency by not allowing to go outside certain values; to the aforesaid ones they place side by side an amplifier video to wide band (3) with the task to match them the levels from your card video to compatible levels with the monitor and an audio amplifier stereo (4).

JammASD previews moreover 3 escapes of type "open collector" (5) in order communicate stores with 100 capacity until but and a connector RCA (6) for the connection of the guns lightgun. Section video: - the JammASD card has been equipped with an amplifier to wide used band to manage the weak signal levels them outgoing video from the cards video of PC (0,7 volt on 75Ohm) carrying it to 3,5V with escape to low stiffness; this allows to have better and more realistic images. - the microcontroller mixture marks them of sync giving back to the monitor sync a composite of type negative independently from the polarity of the sync of income! - the card previews an exclusive system of protection for your monitor, in fact through the jumper (7) it is possible to select the frequency of horizontal scansion with which it works.

If the escape of your PC is to a various frequency from that settata, the microcontroller stops to transfer the disabilita sincronismo composite and the amplifier video that will darken the monitor avoiding the vision of the image that slides in horizontal without control; this not only avoids to show unpleasant images outside frequency but it prevents also possible breakdowns to your monitor. Between the settaggi available there is: 1) 15Khz; 2) 15Khz/31Khz(immagine sdoppiata for diagnostic) 3) 25Khz 4) no control for the monitor multifrequency NB: JammASD does not convert the outgoing frequencies from your card video; the conversion must carry out it your PC with a system software or hardware.

Section controls: JammASD allows to shape via software the association between the pressed keys and those find to you from your PC so as to to render the configuration of your cabin cruiser more flexible; the configuration happens in way many simple thanks to the practical interface software supplied in equipment; in order to facilitate the configurations to the flight the software can be launch also from commando line (es. c:\jammasd.exe config.jasd) and supports the drag&drop.

The card has been finally equipped of two doors PS/2; in this way it is possible to connect at the same time to the PC is the JammASD that the classic keyboard facilitating the configuration operations. NB:

The Jamma connector previews a maximum of 3+2 keys for player keys 4 and 5 in fact are optional and predisposed on it determines to you piedini of the connector; JammASD uses this predisposition therefore if you have a cabin cruiser with 3 keys for player in which the keys added make head to you to according to connector will have to eliminate it and to connect of the threads to pin 25 and 26 (L and R) not used of the connector jamma. In order to connect keys 6 and 7 he is instead available morsettiera (8).

Audio section: The amplifier "on board" is stereophonic and amplifies marks applied them to the connector (9) giving back it on connector jamma (pin 10 11 Left and pin Right with reference to GND on pin L) with one power (on 8 Ohm) of 2Watt for channel (than more sufficient for a cabin cruiser). E' possible to use it in modality Mono or Stereo (through jumper) and can singularly be regulated the volume on every channel or to create one extends double with a potenziometro for regulations from remote.

Additional escapes: The clips (5) allow to connect a not inductive cargo (or inductive with the added one of the diode valve of I recirculate) with absorptions until 100mA. The cargos are activated from push-buttons CAPS LOCK, attivabili NUM BLOCK and BLOCK SCROLL or to the pressure of a push-button (than through the interface you can settare like preferred) or through commando software; the three led they represent the state of the escapes.

Download From this page it is possible to unload the practical software of configuration for your JammASD; thanks to it you will be able to change the association between the keys of your emplacement of game and those your necessities second find from your PC personalizing the interface to you. Download software configuration Download labVIEW runtime enviroment (necessary for the execution of the software)

ED: I got about half way in rewording it - tough job

Got square eyes

You get the idea by now

yep sounds like a JPAC, perhaps with a few extras
