Game cartridges are so nostalgic! And Arduboy is all about the nostalgia. Designed to be reminiscent of the original DMG Game Boy, Arduboy CE (Cartridge Edition) combines both concepts!
This project was designed with fully customized PCBs and is completely open-source. It features:
- Swappable game cartridges based on the Arduino Pro Micro (including reverse cart protection)
- Extensibility via EXT header (exposes SPI/I2C/GPIO pins) -- add your own crank, accelerometer, joystick, flash chip, RGB LED, or any other add-on of your own creation!
- Rechargeable battery (with play 'n charge capability via load-sharing circuitry)
- Analog volume control
- Large 2.44" 128x64 OLED display
This project is completely open-source! All instructions and materials can be found at:
🎮 I'm also planning to do one in a GBA layout :)
