arduFPGA GameConsole is a product that load and play arduboy compatible games from onboard uSD memory card, the VS1053b section is not populated with components.
This board is intended to be used as mobile game console and music player, but the utility of this board can be extended using the three pins wired to the micro USB connector. This board by default is delivered with two stage boot-loader, the uSD tree of games can be downloaded form https://github.com/dev-board-tech/arduFPGA-iCE40UP5K-game-console-images-release, these applications are independent applications that are selected and load from uSD using a GUI explorer. The schematics, FPGA design and all games and applications are open source using GPLv2 license. Further designs and applications will be found on https://github.com/dev-board-tech
Used components on the board:
* If the full colour display is used, all arduboy games need to run with a design that include the necessary IP's to translate SSD1306 display signals in to LH096TIG11 display signals, in this case the image will be smaller than on a SSD1306 display.
The default design for SSD1306 display include a interlaced ntsc composite generator IP that use the UART_TX and UART_RX pins on the USB connector as signal output, needing only one 510Ohm and one 150Ohm resistors wired in series between UART_TX (150Ohm) and UART_RX (510Ohm), the composite signal can be extracted from between resistors.
