How to Make Arduboy

Introduction: How to Make Arduboy

About: HI! I am Junez Riyaz, currently doing Bachelor of Technology in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering. I am much interested in inventing something new yet from my childhood. In my leisure time…

In this article you will see, how to make mini Gameboy using Arduino Nano. It is also called as Arduboy.

The Arduboy is a handheld game console with open source software, based on the Arduino hardware platform.

Lets make it ...!

Step 1: Components Required

Arduino Nano

I2C OLED display

LEDs( Red – 1, Green -1, Yellow -1 )

Piezo Buzzer

330 Ohm resistors – 3

10K Ohm resistors – 1

Tactile switches – 6

PCB or Breadboard

Step 2: Arduboy Circuit

This Arduboy supports audio effects and lighting effects.

Step 3: PCB Design & Gerber File

I have also made a PCB for this circuit, you can download the gerber file here.

Step 4: Code

Download Arduboy Library

First install the above arduboy library.

For installing go to Sketch > Include Library > Add .zip Library > Upload the downloaded library

Now Upload the code. I uploaded breakout game code. You will find it in library examples.

Step 5: PCB Assembly

It will be easy if you watch once and start making.

Step 6: That's All

That's all guys, you have made it!

If you have any query at any step, just comment below. I will respond as soon as possible.
