MintyPi: a pi zero based gaming system in a mint tin #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Thanks to Warner for sending in this project – nice work! He writes:

I made a Raspberry Pi Zero-based RetroPie console crammed into an Altoids tin, using mostly products from Adafruit (and a hacked-to-pieces DS Lite controller). I call it…. MintyPi!

NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 2.0″ Diagonal: Yes, this is an adorable miniature television! The visible display measures only 2.0″ diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use – simply connect 6-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There’s a little button to adjust the LED backlight brightness (5 levels) – there is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.

Adafruit Mono 2.5W Class D Audio Amplifier – PAM8302: This super small mono amplifier is surprisingly powerful – able to deliver up to 2.5 Watts into 4-8 ohm impedance speakers. Inside the miniature chip is a class D controller, able to run from 2.0V-5.5VDC. Since the amp is a class D, its very efficient (over 90% efficient when driving an 8Ω speaker at over half a Watt) – making it perfect for portable and battery-powered projects. It has built in thermal and over-current protection but we could barely tell it got hot. There’s even a volume trim pot so you can adjust the volume on the board down from the default 24dB gain. This board is a welcome upgrade to basic “LM386” amps! Read more.
