[ PRE ORDER ] Gameboy Zero PocketPi FE Round 3

Post by galaxygaming » Mon Dec 03, 2018 3:48 pm

Hey Folks,

So Round 3 of the PocketPi FE Kits we have been working on are up for pre order now. Its a Gameboy Pocket Semi Modular AIO it has the following specs..
  • Fast 320×240 high contrast ratio and high viewing angle 2.6” Screen. The size really helps make text heavy games like Pokemon so much easier to read.
  • i2S Audio. The best audio you can squeeze from the Raspberry Pi. It’s also Stereo mixed into both channels rather than opting for mono only.
  • On-Screen Battery monitoring. See exactly how much time you’ve got left to play with an on screen battery monitor and automatic safe shutdown when the battery gets low.
  • Safe Shutdown. Switching the Pocket to ‘off’ doesn’t just kill the power, it safely shuts it down (This avoids corruption of SD cards that can occur with sudden power cuts. It also comes with a safety button that will cut the power, just in case).
  • Optional Full HDMI out for connection to TV’s & Monitors.
  • Wireless Charging
  • L&R Shoulder Buttons, We have added solder ports should you wish to add back buttons to your build.
You can see some Demos on our Youtube here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCziLIj ... ZV3M1gMuTg

Pics of the PCB and a completed one are attached.

There are a few versions available:
  • £4.50 + Shipping - A bare PCB which you solder all the SMD parts on yourself and make your own case etc..
  • £80 + Shipping - A Kit version which comes with EVERYTHING you need except the PI and Micro SD card.
  • £150 + Shipping - A pre built fully complete PocketPi FE
You can view all the kits and the case options over at https://galaxygaming.co.uk/product-cate ... cketpi-fe/

The BOM is already live for the bare PCB's so you can order all the components you need in advance for when they ship. The user guides and documentation along with the Software Images will all be released either before or on the date the pre orders ship.

Wermy also has made an awesome build guide video which you can view here

just picked up 3 boards. Looking forward to this! I may try to wire up an A+ in one of them. I'll have to do it via wires instead of headers.

I read somewhere about glass screens made custom for the screens - any word on these?

Also do you have a complete list of parts with part numbers? I'm having trouble with the links... some of the parts like the micro usb socket would be easier to find if I just had the part number.

Finally.... looking forward to any 3d printed parts you can share. Thank you again, this is great!

Hey, there is a full arrow BOM on the site, if you can't access it I have it saved on my pc I can upload it here in a bit, I will also have a zip file of all the stls needed to upload soon, if you need custom screen lenses seperate from the kits I believe bluup will be selling them seperate, pm him on discord and he can help.

Hi, no sorry it's not possible to get that, but if you pre order the blank PCBs and all the components from the Wakelet page then you will have it all around the same time or before the PCBs arrive anyways. Cheers.

Hello there!

Thanks for the update! Super happy that Tier 1/Round 1 has started shipping. Awesome work!

Just wanted to ask about the shipping for Tier 1 kits? We should be getting tracking numbers for our orders, yes? Or maybe an e-mail confirmation that our order has shipped out?
