Following on from Chiptunes, this is an ArduinoBoy specific article. It also covers ArduinoBoy derivatives, such as TeensyBoy, and others…

Following on from A tiny one, and a missing opportunity to attend a workshop and make a 8 Bit Mixtape Neo, I thought I’d look up the schematic and code…
The Neo is a simply device that plays ByteBeat, and provides a mechanical interface (two rotary controls and some buttons) in order to change the current ByteBeat being played, see ByteBeat on Arduino. As the name suggests, around half of the device (and code) is dedicated to using the Adafruit NeoPixel LED library. Examining the code of 8Bit-Mixtape-NEO/Code/NEO_8Pixel-OneLiners/NEO_8Pixel-OneLiners.ino, the left hand rotary control controls the speed, the right hand merely changes the visuals, and a button selects which one out of seven bytebeats is played, or plays a single tune in the case of FamilyMart.ino.

Following on from Chiptunes, I purchased a beautiful red GameBoy original from the market for 30 baht. Obviously, at that price, it is in a right bad state.

My interest was recently piqued by the ATtinyXX series… in particular the ATtiny85, when my friend Pavel, from Bang Sue Electrix, told me about the 8BitMixtapeNEO.

Following on from the single board Arduino Boy, see Chiptunes, I thought that it would be prudent to make some notes about barebones Arduino schematics, that can then be incorporated into single board designs

Everyone is talking about Chiptunes these days, the retro sound obtained from the games devices, and home computers of the 80s:
- Music from Game Boys –
- C64 SID, MOS Technology 6582, see SID. Also 8580R5 and 6581, Video chip 6567 (VIC20)
- General Instruments AY-3-8910
- YM2149F, a derivative of the AY-3-8910
- Texas Instruments SN76489
