I've been working on an updated design of Karri's programmer board and discussed making more of these with him, he's given me the go-ahead. This version is a "Pi Hat" design. It slots in on top of a Raspberry Pi 2 GPIO connector and has standoffs to secure it in place. The board uses a proper Lynx cartridge connector, not pogo pins. In addition there are a couple of indicator LEDs to show activity/error status.
The board is compatible with Karri's cart PCBs (read/write) and it can read other carts, including carts that make use of SWVCC for power. You can purchase a set of 10x blank cart boards from Karri here - http://www.whitelynx...=0&sort=normal. Note that you will need cart shells to make use of these, one white shell will be supplied with each board but you can purchase more if you like.
- Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin GPIO header
- Linux knowledge
What you will get:
- Pre-assembled Pi-Hat board
- 2x 11mm standoffs
- 4x M2.5 screws
- 1x 3D printed white cart shell
- Production Pi-Hat - 60EUR + shipping
- Pre-orders - 50EUR + shipping (finished)
- 1x 3D printed cartridge shell - 4EUR
- 10x 3D printed cartridge shells - 36EUR
Pre-order is now closed. If you still want to get a board, please comment here or contact me. All new boards (after the pre-order) will be available on the Atari Gamer Store once it's up and running.
