SNES Retro Gaming using the Adafruit Feather Huzzah32 and a Custom FeatherWing #ESP32 #Feather #SNES @bitluni
bitluni posts about making ESP32 game consoles. This project is a simple custom shield for the Adafruit Huzzah32 Feather microcontroller board. It provides two SNES connectors, an SD card slot and RCA connectors for audio/ color PAL video.
This video shows a self made retro game console. The console is designed as a FeatherWing for the Adafruit Huzzah32 microcontroller. It uses I2S and the internal DACs to create a color PAL signal and mono sound. Two SNES controller connectors provide the input to make it simple console. The SD card slot should provide the possibility to additional game data. The 3D printed case resembles an old fashion Super Nintendo console (SNES). A simple PCB is designed and soldered and some tips and tricks are explained how to make the life easier.
Here’s the video of the project and see the video notes for more information.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
