Open Source Cartridge Reader #Gaming #Vintage #Collecting #ReverseEngineering
The Open Source Cartridge Reader is an open source project representing a community-driven effort to provide an easy to build and easy to modify cartridge dumper.
Completely stand-alone, does not need a PC to operate (unless for updating firmware)
Easy to modify open-source code, write your own extensions and share them with others
Portable thanks to a battery/power bank
Modular design using mostly off-the-shelf components
Reads official NES, Famicom and Family Basic cartridges including save
Supports Mapper 30/NESmaker and flashes INL NM30 boards
Reads SNES roms and reads/writes save games from and to the SNES cartridge
Supported cartridge types so far: LoRom, HiRom, ExHiRom, DSP, SuperFX, SuperFX2, SDD1, CX4, SPC7110, SA1 (last two chips need Adafruit Clock Generator)
Reads and writes SNES Satellaview 8M Memory packs (BS-X cartridge and Adafruit Clock Generator needed)
Reads and writes Nintendo Power Super Famicom Memory Flash Cartridges (needs Adafruit Clock Generator for best result)
Reflashes some Chinese or custom-made SNES repros with AM29F032, MBM29F033, MX29LV320 or MX29LV640 flashroms
Reads N64 roms and reads/writes save games(4K/16K Eeprom + Sram + all 3 types of Flashram), Eeprom needs Adafruit Clockgen, Proto carts are not supported yet
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.
