I’ve been anxiously awaiting some voltage regulator boards I ordered from eBay for the past 2 weeks. It seems they all came from China and all got here within a day or two of each other. It’s kinda neat to see how each came packaged differently, through different mail systems, but yet all arrived safely on the other side of the planet.
My DigiSpark mini Arduino board came in as well. This was a kickstarter based project from DigiStump that puts a whole Arduino with USB connector into a 1 square inch of space.
It seems that the PiMAME 0.5 beta release is going well. I advise everyone running it to expand the filesystem before uploading any games. To do this, exit out of AdvMENU, then type sudo raspi-config on the command line. Press enter and run the Expand Filesystem tool so you will have the usable space of your SD Card. PiMAME was built to run on a 2GB SD Card, but only has 8MB of usable space be default.
Have a good weekend!
What is the little green one on the bottom?, I’ve been looking at the blue one that does 3 and 5v, to power the PI, and a small 5v amp, all coming off a 12v wall wart (the will also power a screen)…
The 0.5 Beta is working like a champ…
That little green one is a bare bones 5v regulator. 6-12v in the barrel jack or through the screw in terminals, 5v out the back terminals. I kinda like that one the best.
Agreed, I’m looking for it now on EBay, it’s pretty much what I was looking for, the smaller the better…
There ya go!
Ordering a couple of them right now, I have plans for these…
Oh, I would love to learn how to design that stuff. So neat.
