GBA-SPi Zero - NES Edition

Post by codeman0624 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 2:30 pm

I made a new version of the GBA-SPi Zero...this time without cutting X and Y buttons. Several good SNES games were re-released on the GBA, so having just two buttons isn't such a bad thing. And it comes out looking really clean, identical to a stock device.

The builds with my AIO board are going fast and easy!

Specs:
  • Raspberry Pi Zero W plus heatsink, mounted to custom AIO board
  • 16GB Class-10 SD card
  • 3.2 inch SPI screen
  • I2S Audio (much better than PWM)
  • 2000mAh battery (big battery for a build this small!)


Features:
  • Charge through micro USB
    -Can charge and play simultaneously. Green LED is on when charging, off when fully charged
  • Full size USB port
    -Plug in a keyboard to enter your home WiFi password, or transfer roms from a USB stick
  • Safe shutdown
    -Original power slide switch turns it on, and also implements safe shutdown for the Raspberry Pi when turned off. Just use the power switch at any time and it will shutdown safely
  • On screen battery indicator
    -Press the brightness button to toggle the on screen battery symbol
  • Adjust screen brightness
    -Hold the brightness button for 2 seconds and release. Blue LED will begin blinking. Hold up or down on the D pad to adjust the screen brightness. Hold the brightness button again and release to return to normal operation
  • Low Battery Warning
    -Red LED will turn on when battery is low, will begin blinking when battery is critically low
  • Volume slider
    -Functions just like in a regular GBA-SP to adjust the volume
  • Everything in the tiny GBA-SP form factor
    -This is hard to do!

Here's an album of the pictures of the internal pieces. It is all based around an AIO board I created:

There's also more info and pictures in the thread for the board pre-order, though it's dead now:
