Re: Faulty Charging Circuit

Here are some pictures of the setup. I disconnected the battery because the enable pin is open and I couldn't take a decent picture with the LEDs on. The wires near where the charger plugs into the motherboard (marked Vin and GND) are wired to the USB and GND pins on the Powerboost. It works perfect...

Re: Use a C.H.I.P instead of the RPi 0 ?

It should support the Teensy should you not choose to use its I/O pins for controls.

Definitely a valid, perhaps superior option if Emulation Station comes out for it. Unfortunately, there is no current build that supports it and probably won't be for a long time.

Re: Wii U Gamepad zero/gamepi project thread

SMD or Through Hole parts? I guess SMD would be nice but it's really up to you. There's limited space back there so I guess SMD to get it as compact as possible. A tactile switch should work fine. You could even have the switch mount to the opposite side of the board as the components. The power bu...

Re: Wii U Gamepad zero/gamepi project thread

Would be awesome if someone could design a PCB to handle this circuit. We could place the board right underneath the power button.

Re: DS Lite Pi Zero - Mod Discussion

Stuck the display in today, fits like a charm! :D I had to trim around the edges a bit but no big deal. It fits perfectly between the two speaker housings.
