RaspberryBoy – BuildLog #3


Little and short update: finally I think I have all the parts for my RaspberryBoy!

  1. DMG-01 case – green transparent
  2. TFT screen, for car parking
  3. Optical fiber 
  4. Buttons and controls
  5. External USB audio card (Sabrent)
  6. Micro Switches
  7. Speaker and audio jack from an original DMG-01
  8. Cartridge reader from an original DMG-01
  9. Original cartridge
  10. Micro USB board (Adafruit) 
  11. Power Board (Adafruit) 
  12. Audio Amplifier (Adafruit)
  13. Micro SD breadboard (Adafruit)
  14. Empty modular breadboard
  15. Raspberry 0
  16. Battery 2700 mAh
  17. Old DMG-01 mother board



The tools I’m using basically are:

  • Screwdrivers
  • Rotary tool with different heads
  • Soldering iron
  • Solder sucker
  • Hot glue
  • Cables of different sizes


Now the hard work. I will start modifying the actual case. I’ll have to work very carefully because it is a transparent one. I’m not sure on the results, I think it will be clearly noticeable that the case has been modified but since it’s my first work and I won’t have to sell it, sadly I have to sacrifice the beauty and concentrate on the functionality.

Once the case is done I will unmount the screen and set it up to fit in the new case. I will devote a specific post on that. Stay tuned 🙂
