    NOTE: Installation requires advanced knowledge of wiring and soldering; Focusattack.com will not accept returns with the PCB highly soldered.  PCB feet larger than 2mm will not fit board.  It is recommended that you confirm that the latest firmware is installed on your device by visiting the Brook PS4 Device Support page, downloading the firmware update app, and following instructions in the manual. new-window-icon.png Links to Brook device firmware update information and instructions are available in the Support tab.

    The Brook Fight Board PCBA is the first custom PCB designed specifically to add PS3/PS4 support to custom Fightsticks.

    In the previous generation of consoles, it took many years for developers to create a means to control the Xbox 360.  Just two years into the PS4's lifespan, we have several options, and none more sophisticated than the Brook family of control adapters and hardware.  

    Brook PS3/PS4 FIght Board PCBA Wiring SchematicSmall Wonder

    At just 1.58 inches square (40mm), the Brook Fighting PCBA contains all of the pinouts for an 8-button configuration, plus the following additional controls and indicators:

    • Start
    • Home
    • Select
    • Turbo
    • Touchpad key (PS4 touchpad press emulation)
    • Full PS4 touchpad support
    • Player (1-3) indicator LED support
    • Turbo Button LED support

     Each pinout is clearly marked on the PCBA for wiring. 

    No 8-Minute Timeout

    One of the significant features that help Brook stand away from other conversion products is its ability to bypass the 8-minute PS4 security timeout.  This allows for uninterrupted play without the need for manual button resets, software auto-resets, or potential disabling risks during a tournament.  Other features include:

    • Compatible with Sony Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PC via X-Input mode
    • Automatic switching between consoles.
    • SOCD Cleaner support.
    • Turbo function.
    • Firmware update through USB connection.


    Economical for the Modder Enthusiast or Professional Builder

    It is well known that with few exceptions, pad-hacking for the Playstation is a long and labored affair.  The Brook Fight Board PCBA is compact enough to fit in nearly any Fightstick.  At just $39.95, conveniences offered by a single integrated PCBA allow pros to keep their costs down, and enthusiasts a low barrier of entry into building a terriffic custom joystick for the current generation of consoles. 

    2016 Tournament Acceptance

    As of now, the Brook family of Super Converters are allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events.  Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments. This policy is a tentative acceptance - should the converter become disabled via Sony firmware update before EVO, it could face a ban.  Though the PCBA is not mentioned here, and not limited by this policy, you should take care to update the PCBA firmware before attending a tournament, should Sony's own firmware updates disable it. Both converters and PCBA use the same technology to allow non-timeout play on the PS4. You can learn more about it here (Opens in new window).

    1. I can't complain.

      So I ordered another Brook Ps3/4 fight board. What can i say this pcb is a god send. When I got the pcb I soldered up all the wires and put it in my stick. I wanted to test everything first before doing the firm ware update. So i go and play some BlazBlueCF, come to find out the pcb was already updated with current firmware. This made me very happy. Mind you updating the firmware is extremely easy. But out of the box? I was a happy man. If you have soldiering skills or know someone that does, buy this pcb. I have another stick with a brook ps3\4 pcb and a ps360+ and that stick feels alot slower witht the input but nothing crazy. The brook ps3/4 board alone has less input lag, just some info for you all. But yeah buy this pcb and be happy peace out guys. on May 29th 2018

    2. Compact and Efficient

      With a little experience soldering this PCB is a breeze to set up. Anytime there is a PS4 update brookaccessory has been very quick to release a firmware update to avoid the 8 minutes disconnect. I'd suggest picking up an IMP 2 if you're dual modding and visit digi-key.com to pick up some 90° pin headers and jumper wires to keep your install nice and neat. I'd strongly recommend a Neutrik USB pass-through with this product as well. Great product, great price. on Apr 13th 2016

    3. The tiny girl who has all the moves

      This board is tiny (like CPU-ish in size.)

      The soldering is tricky for beginners but it's manageable once you get the hang of it.

      I wouldn't suggest using more that 22 awg wire since i used this size and it was an almost exact fit.

      The great part is that this was the definition of plug and play on my PC (windows 10). I'm yet to try it out on PS3/4

      Overall i'm very impressed with the performance and massive options this board allows despite it's midget size. There are more buttons supported than my previous PS360+

    4. Works, but a total pain in the ass

      I'm no stranger to soldering. On paper this is the perfect solution for making custom PS4 controllers. I appreciate the full feature support (even the RGB light pinout!) that you can use or ignore depending on what the application is. The HUGE downside is that the vias are tiny, and it was a struggle even getting 26ga wire (from Focus Attack) threaded through them for soldering. It took me way too long to get this all put together and a lot of swearing. I would certainly recommend using 2.54mm spaced headers and pinning your own connectors, instead of soldering direct to the board. on Feb 19th 2016

    5. Works perfectly after firmware update.

      Prior to firmware update, it will still lose connection after 8 minutes on PS4, but the update takes only a few seconds and can be done through any USB port. on Feb 18th 2016
