Info
 

The ControlBlock is an extension board for the Raspberry Pi that adds power switch and power LED functionality and expands the GPIO pins for connecting original game controllers or arcade controllers.

The power switch can be used to clean shutdown the system through the use of a linux driver. This prevents file corruption and and the possible loss of data

Optional LED provides on/off status as well as boot up and shut down status

GPIO pins can be accessed via the Raspberry Pi SPI interface
