Colour Maximite version 1.5 (PicoMite VGA USB v2)

(can be backordered, with lead-time of about two weeks)

This is the latest PCB from the world of MMBASIC - the PicoMite VGA, USB edition.  A feature-rich board, measuring only 100mm x 75mm.  It contains the Raspberry Pi(TM) RP2040 chip as the heart of the board.
  • Small size - only 100mm x 75mm
  • Colour VGA output (MODE 2 @ 320 x 240)
  • Mono VGA output (MODE 1 @ 640 x 480)
  • Dual-core ARM M0+ RP2040 QFN processor 
  • USB keyboard support
  • USB mouse support
  • USB Hub support
  • PS3 and PS4 USB game-controller support
  • USB-C connector for power and console
  • 2.5W class-D stereo audio amplifier with screw-terminal output
  • PWM audio output filter
  • Volume control
  • Micro-SD card slot (supports FAT16 or FAT32)
  • RTC and backup battery
  • USB-to-serial chip
  • 40-pin I/O connector.
  • Supports serial(UART), I2C, SPI, OneWire(TM) and PS/2 protocols

The board comes fully assembled/programmed/tested, and ready to use right out of the box.  The MMBASIC interpreter runs one one core of the CPU, and the VGA output runs on the other core, meaning that generating the VGA has no effect on the speed of the MMBASIC interpreter, as they both use their own core in the CPU.

You will need to supply a CR2032 button-cell battery.  We cannot supply the board with the battery, as Litium button-cells are a prohibited item as far as shipping is concerned, but the CR2032 button cell is ubiquitous and very easy to find in just about any country.

International tracked shipping is used for all orders, and a tracking number will be emailed to you once your parcel is shipped.  The case+panels option will be available from late June 2024, but you can pre-order if you like, on the understanding that those orders won't ship till then.

US$55 each, fully assembled WITHOUT case or panels.
US$75 each, fully assembled in case with front/rear panels.
