PRODUCT ID: 2708
$27.95

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.

Features:

  • 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!
