Rodocop's 18th GBZ

Post by rodocop » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:55 am

So I have finished this one a few weeks back, just forgot to post a showoff thread.

This one is using TinkerBoy's v3 AIO board, 3.5" composite screen, white buttons, shell, and screen glass from retromodding, a generic power boost module and a 3500Mah battery. Pretty standard parts, nothing special. I really like the color though, and HoolyHoo's stormtrooper theme adds a nice little touch too.

Is that all you need for that build with the Tinkerboy 3.0? I am looking to build my first one and trying to figure out what parts I will need.

Really no need for a usb hub anyways, PWM/I2S sounds, GPIO controls and usb for external usb.

yeah, out of 18 builds I have only used one USB hub, and that was back when the pi zero W was not a thing. So I needed extra usb for a wifi dongle, as well as external USB. Never used one since.

Is i2S pcm5102 dac a good choice? Easy to configure? Did anyone used it?
What about battery monitor, what options do i have?

I would use adafruits amps, but i have a bunch of mono amps here already :( that's why i thought using the PCM mentioned above, and use the amps.
I bought those ads1015, any direction or info on how to wire it (using a generic/bangood power supply) and what to do/install on pi0?

Thanks for your and robocop's help so far!!

Ads wiring seen here. If using a dpdt switch you can have 5v ang battery voltage go through the switch. This diagram only shows a spst switch.
