The Pimoroni Picade Cabinet is a stylish, retro, and fun arcade cabinet for your Raspberry Pi!
The Picade Cabinet comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included – you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi and power adapter. We highly recommend using a Raspberry Pi 2 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators.
This is the desktop arcade cabinet version of the Pimoroni Picade.
The panels are powder-coated in black so the end result feels like a finished, quality product. The chassis makes a great sounding-board for the included speakers, you can’t fake that retro sound.
The Pimoroni Picade Console Controller is a stylish, retro, and fun arcade controller for your Raspberry Pi!
The Picade Console Controller comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included – you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi! We highly recommend using a Raspberry Pi 2 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators.
This is the console controller version of the Pimoroni Picade.
The panels are powder-coated in black so the end result feels like a finished, quality product. The chassis makes a great sounding board for the included speakers, you can’t fake that retro sound. In our example we used our 10.1″ 1366×768 HDMI Display IPS.
The Pimoroni Picade Controller PCB is an Arduino-compatible board with an integrated 3W stereo amplifier designed for use in arcade projects (like the Picade Cabinet or Picade Console Controller). Basically its everything-you-need to make a Pi ready for your very own DIY arcade console project.
The controller comes fully assembled and behaves like a keyboard when plugged in via USB and has a default key-mapping (though you can reprogram it using the Arduino IDE). Connections are made using screw terminals for a solid, permanent installation.
It uses the same micro-controller as the Arduino Leonardo (the ATmega32U4) and is pre-installed with the Arduino bootloader and Pimoroni software.
Powered by an ATmega32U4 (32KB, 2.5K RAM @ 16MHz)
6-pin ISP header for direct programming (also pre-loaded with Arduino bootloader)
Includes a stereo 3W amplifier (PAM8407) for use with 4Ω speakers
Appears as a USB HID device (keyboard) to the host
Screw terminal contacts for four-direction Joystick, 12 buttons, and two speakers
