Making retro PC add-in cards with Raspberry Pi Pico #RetroComputing #RaspberryPiPico @ianpolpo @FreddyVETELE @yyzkevin
There is a trend to use the Raspberry Pi Pico in designs used to emulate cards for old PCs. The emulation route started with the XTIDE Compact Flash to IDE hard drive card. With the Pico, things have much more capability.
The first was Ian Scott’s PicoGUS used to emulate a Gravis Ultrasound board. See the picture above and the video below.
The second design is the PicoMEM. a PC RPM/RAM/EMS/USB emulator using a Pico and a Micro SD card by Freddy Vetele.
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.
