I recently designed my own Button PCB for the Gameboy zero with integrated charging circuit and Audio circuit (newer version but not tested yet with safeshutdown). I don´t want to sell the boards or anything because there are already good options out there to buy (and to make your own boards where you have to think about the layout and the parts is really funny, interesting and instuctive) So I thought it would be a good idea to make the design files and gerber files available for everyone who would like to build his own PCB and add some custom stuff. So this is more intended for the DIY people out there, who want to try/test something new rather than these who wan´t right from the beginning a really good working board which you can buy from various members here in the forum. I think the board I designed isn´t a bad starting point and maybe someone is interested in that.
here are some pictures of the board:
Here is a link to the build with the board I´m currently doing and more infos about it:
Is this a good idea or do I get someone in the way by giving the boardfiles for free?
I also thought to say that everybody can have the files but if he/she add some functionality he/she has to post the result with the files here in the comments or somewhere in the Forum. (I mean I can´t control that but it would be nice if he/she does that) And also if you use the board/files you should give credit to the person which files you used (if someone else than me edited the board files and uploaded it to the forum)
last the only thing I don´t want is that you use the files to sell the boards.
If this gets approval what would be the best way to publish the files? Here on the forum as an attachment or on github or somewhere else?
