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...

microsd solder points

Does the CS expose pads for soldering on a microsd adapter?

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

Could you modify the d-pad contacts to match the original GB/NES/SNES controllers? :) See the bottom of this post for a comparison and explanation:

Stuck pixels on 640x480 LCD screen

Hi Kite, I'm just getting around to doing my CS build and noticed that the 640x480 LCD screen that came with the order has 5 stuck pixels. 3 are noticeable but 2 aren't that bad (in fact I didn't notice the other 2 until after I opened the photos in Paint!). I know these screens are expensive for ev...

Re: DPI Adapter prototype

So I've been working on your first setup for 24-bit with just the first adapter but it takes the GPIO pins that are used for sound that I would normally wire up to my Helder board. I notice in this one you have a pi zero instead of the 3, I know you said this is just for testing but in my scenario ...

Re: Wiring PRS Tech Board SD-Cart Reader

This is the correct wiring. It matches mine -- I used the same adapter in an SAIO build also with a PRS card reader.

Re: DPI Adapter prototype

Nice work! This will take many custom builds to the next level.

If possible, please support using a wheel pot to adjust LCD brightness ala OG DMG :)

Re: RPi3 device tree hacking and power consumption

Welp, this appears to be uncharted territory so I've settled on just using the dt overlay to disable onboard bluetooth/wifi, in addition to disabling all but 1 CPU core and underclocking the CPU. The Cortex A53 chip doesn't need to run at full tilt to play SNES/16-bit games. If that's still not enou...
