    Board scan SNES PCB

    Hi! I got tired of the bad SNES schematics floating around online. So I made my own, but this time they are open-source and I traced the board to verify them (spoiler: they were wrong in multiple places) They are for the PAL 2CHIP rev5 The source is at...
  3. Question Wii Motherboard Stackup

I am aware that the 4 layer wii motherboard is doccumetned here https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/wii-rvk-01-compendium-released.93/ but unless I am missing something this only...
  4. Discussion WiiBoy Player Concept

    Hello all, I had this concept in my head for a while and finally found a good tech-savvy community to bounce ideas/questions off of. The Wii essentially has an an entire Gamecube inside of it, and with the controller and memory ports, it can do ALMOST anything a Gamecube can. Except use of the...
  5. Question Building a Portable Wii : 4Layer's PCB Shortage

    I'm a huge fan of electronic projects and I really would like to do my own portable Wii. I own a 3D printer and have some skill in 3D modeling, printing, soldering, PCB conception... I've started to search for more information about how the motheboard trimming works, what components would I...

    G-Boy PCB Files?

    Hey all, I was hoping to make a G-Boy to get back into this hobby. I had tried to make a portable Wii in the past and got it electronically working great but my case design skills were lacking. I would like to make a G-Boy to have some fun with and I have already found the STL files posted by...
  7. Solved RVL PMS Ordering?

    I've been in the beginning stages of actually putting together a G-Wii for a couple months now. I couldn't get fan spin, and I think I likely messed up my PMS (there was a spark at one point and I think I may have shorted something with an accidental solder drip), and to add to that, I managed...

    Model BitBuilt Store switch breakout holders + Joycon Joystick holders

    I'll start off by saying thanks to the ones that made the PCB from the store these will be great in portable projects. This model I decided to make should help anyone using those style of PCBs, my cad skills are a bit limited so this was made in Tinkercad so I can only provide STLs. I know the...

    Question Gamecube Port PCB

    Background I'd like to make a PCB for the gamecube ports. Measured the pin pitch and connector spacing as best I could. I believe I got within an acceptable margin. Printing the layout onto paper before manufacturing the PCB saves time and money! I've attached a PDF file with my dimensions for...

    Worklog XboxDVI

    As some of you may know, the original xbox is really lacking in video output modes for the modern era. It is only capable of analog video out, and doesn't even support VGA through that. Early versions of the xbox use a CX25871 as the video encoder, which can take a variety of digital inputs and...

    Solved Pad Labeling on GC+

    There are two pads across from each other (for resistors) with the label R2R9 - the rest of the pads are labeled R1-R16 (except R2 and R9). My question is: do I solder both R2 and R9 to those pads? What does it mean?
  12. How do you keep your components?

    In general, I would like to know how you keep those components that you will not use for a long time (PCB's, screens, motherboards, etc.) I use a random box in a safe place, with bags with those tempting bubbles inside (mmmm squishy), and a antistatic bag. And you?

    Question Getting started with EAGLE

    'Sup memers. I was wondering if anyone had good resources for getting started with EAGLE that they could direct me towards. I've done a lot of CAD with Solidworks and Autodesk, so the ecosystem isn't too foreign to me. Thanks for anything you've got.

    Model Ds pads

    So in my Squiifer thread, I released a board for dslite rubber pads, it cut greatly on the side compared to using regular buttons. more people than I thought I would were using it. and asking for stuff on it I sadly lost when my laptop died. So I quickly whipped up a new one, and decided to...

    Hared-brained PCB schemes, aka "it's not meant for that, idiot"

    From the department of "don't worry, I'm dumb enough to give it a go"; I've put JLCPCB hard at work This outline is for 7" 800*600 displays such as A070SN01 etc. I did alternative bottom tiles dimensioned for the 6.5", 800*480 AT065TN14 All broken up into <10x10cm tiles to take...

    Discussion Custom BMS Balancer

    I thought about creating my own 3s Li-ion balancing/charging circuit to place on my recent projects pcb. But after some research, I havent found any solid leads on how to approach something like this. For comparison, if you search for "DIY audio amp circuit", you get truckloads of great designs...

    PS2 controller PCB files

    Hello all, So typically I've finished my PS2p and was left thinking "I wish the insides were cleaner" and then had a crazy idea that'd require me to make my own PCB for handling the controller to come up with a solution. Simple question: -Are there any PCB files for the PS2 controller freely...
