Pimoroni Picade Controller PCB - PIM110

  • Description-


    The Pimoroni Picade Controller PCB is an Arduino-compatible board with an integrated 3W stereo amplifier designed for use in arcade projects (like the Picade Cabinet or Picade Console Controller). Basically its everything-you-need to make a Pi ready for your very own DIY arcade console project.

    The controller comes fully assembled and behaves like a keyboard when plugged in via USB and has a default key-mapping (though you can reprogram it using the Arduino IDE). Connections are made using screw terminals for a solid, permanent installation.

    It uses the same micro-controller as the Arduino Leonardo (the ATmega32U4) and is pre-installed with the Arduino bootloader and Pimoroni software.


    • Powered by an ATmega32U4 (32KB, 2.5K RAM @ 16MHz)
    • 6-pin ISP header for direct programming (also pre-loaded with Arduino bootloader)
    • Includes a stereo 3W amplifier (PAM8407) for use with 4Ω speakers
    • Appears as a USB HID device (keyboard) to the host
    • Screw terminal contacts for four-direction Joystick, 12 buttons, and two speakers
    • Reset button
    • Mounting holes
    • Power, Bootload, TX, and RX LED indicators

    Note: PCBs may come blue or red which is out of our control. Functionally they're the same!
