This has been a long time coming! ANNOUNCING AVAILABILITY of a DaftMike Clone DIY Electronics Kit !!!!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/523973930/mini-nespi-electronics-kit?ref=shop_home_active_2

If you already have a 3D printed case, raspberry pi, arduino, NFC reader, and all you are missing is something to tie them all together. This kit is for you!!

I can answer questions here, by PM, or email thatdecade@gmail.com

Special thanks to Joshua Kane, Jared Kirchgatter, Jason Victoria, Dave Hicks, Ruud Lok, Jeff Moore, and everyone else who helped me debug the design! This kit fixes several issues with the DaftMike’s original design: broken mosfets, non working controllers, and other assembly difficulties.

Assembly Guide is here:

MiniNES: Projector

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

I found an $50 micro projector on ebay that has a USB power output. The 480 resolution is plenty for all the game systems!  Fits perfectly below the MiniNES case!

I do get undervoltage warnings, but I should be fine as long as I have a clone image to use when my SD card goes corrupt.  Here is the link if anyone wants to take a chance on a “untested” “might be broken” “sold as-is” “no power cable included” projector

MiniNES Progress Update

No automatic alt text available.

Progress update on my rev2 boards. Returned from holiday and am picking up this project again. New boards fix all issues found on rev1 boards (see previous post and sale for those).

I am not taking sales yet. However, I can say that my kit will require soldering (difficulty=easy) and include the following: the PCBs pictured, switches, LED, USB jack. Not included: wire, solder, raspberry pi, arduino pro micro, fan, and NFC.

Features: This is a daftmike clone. Has identical features such as NFC, usb extender, fan control, and multicolor status LED.

MiniNES: NFC Wiring Diagram

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

This wiring guide matches the .ino arduino code titled “NESPi NDEF Reader/Power Controlller v0.1 [mike.g|jun2016]” and python code titled “NESPi Cart Reader v0.1 by mike.g”. Be sure to test the rPi power circuit with a multimeter after assembling before wiring into your rPi.

Note 1: This schematic is a draft, see comments for latest revision.
Note 2: The MOSFET part numbers listed are for surface mount kind, you can substitute with most any through hole package that supports 5 volts or more.
Note 3: This wiring diagram will become outdated if and when Mike posts updated arduino code.
