Peanut - A Tiny Arduboy

Post by Ampersand » Sat Jul 06, 2019 6:22 pm

UPDATE: Peanut is now available! https://www.tindie.com/products/Ampersand/peanut-kit/

In between working on the Null 2, I've been making Peanut.
This is the pre-final prototype.

Peanut is a DIY kit that uses modules rather than tiny components so that it’s easier to make.
It comes on a single PCB with the shell attached, simply snap off the shell (like a real peanut) and solder everything down.
You don’t need any glue or screws or 3D printing to make Peanut.

Features:
0.96" OLED screen
Injection moulded joystick for a proper arcade feel
Rubber button caps for comfort
Peizo speaker
Small but sturdy power switch
Gold-plated PCB
Tiny - 50x35mm

It uses a 360mAh battery, which lasts up to 12 hours and fully charges in 1 hour.

I’m planning to have kits available for $20 on tindie, which includes everything except the battery.

Okay seriously, shut up and take my money. I have an unhealthy fixation with tiny Gameboys and this is cheap enough that I can justify the purchase!

I had no idea about the Arduboy project until I saw Wermy's video - This looks so damn cool!

$20 asking price is a no questions asked, instant buy for sure!

Hey, thanks for this tiny project, I just received mine today, I'm now waiting for the battery from aliexpress before I start the build.
It looks like realy easy to build but, just to be sure and avoid mistake, do you have any guide or tips ?

My only doubts are about the speaker and the battery.
Red wire of the battery on the B+ of the TP4056, black wire on B- ?
And speaker wires above the pro micro on the top left and right corners of the pcb ?

Best regards :)

Edit: Ok my bad, i didn't see the documentation button on Tindy.
The PDF guide for the build is here >

I can't include the battery as I can't legally ship it.
