Re: RPi alternatives that support DPI

Nano Pi Fire 2a or 3. Works fine but uses a proprietary communication protocol ("FriendlyARM’s one-wire technology") for some of the commands. Supposedly, the driver is open source. Setup instructions: http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_Fire2A#Connect_NanoPi-Fire2A_to_FriendlyARM_LCD_...

Re: GAME BOY MiniMo - Pi3a+ with Custom PCB

Very clean! One small change request if you do intend to sell them: please, please, please update the PCB's directional pad contacts to be like the old NES/SNES/Genesis PCB contacts. This small change should greatly help with games that require precise diagonal inputs. Compare old style vs new: cont...

Re: microsd solder points

Version 1.2A and above features a JST (4pin 1.0mm) connector for a USB port which you can wire up a USB to SD adaptor for and place wherever you want. As for the on board one there are no solder points unless you use the legs of the CM3 slot. I can only assume you are trying to use the CM3 with emb...

Re: Using Banana Pi M2 Zero?

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression that AllWinner H2/H3 chips didn't support DPI. Just something to consider if you wanted to drive the LCD directly.

Re: Bracket for 640x480 Full VGA display ?

Hi JPE, Could you take pictures of your screen mounted inside your case? I ask because I have not been able to find a 640x480 screen that fits inside the GB case. This includes removing the screen's metal casing and sanding down the inside of the case to help. Furthermore, the screen, once installed...

Re: tinkerBOY Controller v3.0 Prototype #1
