AGZ: A circuit-level redesign of the Game Boy Advance #GBA #Nintendo @Zekfoo
AGZ-CPU-01 is a circuit-level redesign of the Game Boy Advance designed by Zekfoo. It addresses many of the issues seen with the original GBA.
To commemorate the 20th year since the Game Boy Advance’s release, I have designed a full revamp of its PCB, using only the most essential components from the original hardware, and completely redesigning the remainder of its circuits.
Although the PCB has a GBA form factor, the CPU is taken from a GBA SP for a greater design challenge. The PCB itself has been entirely assembled and soldered by hand.
You can read all the design upgrades and details on the GitHub post.
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.
