Simple question:
If I order a MegaED X7 on Krikzz's store today, will it have proper 5v <> 3.3v voltage level translators?

Thanks for your fast reply.
So there was a Mega ED PCB redesign recently ?
As Krikzz himself says here:
Quote
the only carts which still use direct connection between 5v and 3.3v is mega-x7(partially)..
Please let me know.

No there was not any redesigns recently.
The current version of Mega EverDrive X7 works perfectly for a lot of happy customers (in the full accordance with the JEDEC specs) without any single report about any problems.
That's why we don't have a reason to make a redesign.
If you are interested in using the current version of Mega EverDrive X7 for playing games please feel free to use it.
We guarantee that everything works perfectly without any problems neither for your console nor for the EverDrive itself.
If you are interested more in analyzing its PCB design then you need to wait for a newer version.
