The Powarcade is a third-party Sega Mega Drive arcade stick housed in a proper arcade cabinet. Intended for use with either a standard Mega Drive or arcade PCBs (via an onboard JAMMA connection), it was one of the earliest attempts to produce an arcade cabinet for the home consumer market.
In addition to its advertised Mega Drive compatibility, the Powarcade contains a JAMMA-compatible connection which can be used to play actual arcade PCBs. The hardware outputs video via an onboard SCART connection.
