Blinking Happily

Hi ! Just wanted to share this : the first prototypes of Bitbox rev2 PCBs have arrived (at last !)
So I couldn't resist building one and writing / uploading (using SWD) a very quick test program : it ... blinks ! (meaning I didn't screw up the MCU soldering it :)

Thanks to Marcus for his help on this release !

I'm not dead !
This rev2 will add : 32k colors, stereo sound, USB gamepad connectivity, UEXT expansion ports ...

(edit) Just a small update : VGA gen has been tested OK, SDIO flies at more than 6MB/s on the right conditions, sound is OK (with a small update)  and USB works ! All this needs to be upgraded in a whole new kernel, but independently all reporting OK !


  1. It's been a pleasure! Now I'm looking forward to test the thing, it sure looks good!

  2. Hi your project is very intersting.

    We are doing something similar but for calculator in open hardware. You may want to check out www.librecalc.com .
