Re: Alternative Stereo Headphone Jack

Does anyone know of a good alternative stereo headphone jack to use in a GBZ project? I had picked up one of these but was not sure how to wire it in order for it to have stereo sound and a cutoff switch for the speaker when headphones are plugged in. https://www.radioshack.com/products/radioshack-...

Re: I have an idea for a new piece of hardware I think.

Does anybody know what is the maximum transfer of the microSD port of the Raspberry?



But because there is no BIOS an option to boot from different ports would have been nice though.

Re: [For Sale] Game Boy Zero Controller PCB W/ Optional Audio(Worldwide)

You can remove the wires going to the board and even the capacitors on the left of the board but be sure to use a jumper wire where the capacitors were and that should do it. I see you've removed the out of stock notice from the title. Does this mean you have more now? I'd like one shipped to the U...

Re: Parts List

Your "case" are the full Gameboy so they are overpriced. You can skip the teensy or better you can use an Arduino pro micro (much cheaper). Buying battery on ebay is a really bad idea. My guess would be that the one you pointed out is in reality a 400mah max, those are nasty, it's maybe the only co...

Re: 8-ohm vs 4-ohm Mini Speakers

Well, whatever you are using has an amp inside :) But, for this job. I think you really shouldn't have any problems with 4 ohm speakers. My personal rule of thumb. The higher the impedance, the better (but it needs higher power). Basically. As you go down with impedance you get more into the "hissin...

Re: 8-ohm vs 4-ohm Mini Speakers

That is why you need to know if the amplifier you are connecting to can drive an 4 ohm speaker because it will need to provide twice the current (amps) to drive a 4 ohm vs. the 8 ohm speaker. That is the real problem.

Re: Praying for Part 6

The time you spend waiting is better spend on doing research and trying things out. I learned so much by just doing something instead of waiting for a tutorial. Also, time flies if you work on something :) Exactly. My build will be so much different than Wermy, but I appreciate all the time and vid...

Do you have some solder points which get connected only when pressed more tightly?

I just want to know the answer because these look like something you ...
