The PIF Breakout PCB makes the N64 PIF relocation easier than ever as part of the Advanced N64 Trim. Use hot air to remove the PIF, U8, and U3 and solder them onto this pcb which already has the required components and easy solder pads.
Note: Solder U3 and U8 first! Then the PIF last. If you solder the PIF first, the other IC pads might be difficult to reach.
