My mate Rodders sent me this to investigate.

The LSDJmi project is neat, but I thought I’d make a stripboard version…

Following on from USB to MIDI connections, I had a few quarms about the 6N137. The information below is taken from the now deleted question, 8 pin high speed opto-coupler replacement for 6N137 [closed]

Following on from Making your own ArduinoBoy, I need to get some 5 pin DIN sockets for MIDI connections. There is a surprisingly large array of types out there, but it basically boils down to PCB or panel mounted. But within those two groups there is still a variety to choose from, especially for panel mounted, depending on how you want them to fix into the panel (push fit, screwed on or bolt/compression fit). PCB mounted DIN sockets are generally one of two footprints, depending on whether they are horizontal or vertical.

Following on from ArduinoBoys and others and Scaling PDF for PCB, here’s a step by step guide to making Trash80’s ArduinoBoy, on a PCB. For a photographic guide, see ArduinoBoy build.
Obviously, you don’t have to use a PCB and you could make the ArduinoBoy using stripboard/veroboard, ProtoShield, or even on a breadboard… see at the bottom for a suggested layouts.
BTW, I assume Trash80’s moniker is a nod to the Radio Shack TRS-80?

Following on from Chiptunes, this is an ArduinoBoy specific article. ArduinoBoy was developed by Trash80. It also covers ArduinoBoy derivatives, such as TeensyBoy, and others… This blog is continued in Making your own ArduinoBoy.

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.

Following on from Chiptunes, I thought I’d play around with MIDI on a MacBook.
