To produce a Hub takes 3-4 hours, the actual build steps are as follows:
- Jump wires are soldered to the DB9 connectors and logic converter.
- Logic converter is connected to PS2 socket module.
- LCD screen is attached to 3D printed front cover.
- Wires from all modules are connected to the main board.
- Main board is mounted inside the 3d printed case.
- Modules are attached to the side of case.
Finally, the communication cable is produced by cutting the COM cable and soldering to a male DB9 connector with protective shell.
