A few months ago I came across Arduboywhich according to its official website is a miniature 8-bit game platform that makes it easy to learn, share and play games online. It is an open source platform. The games for the Arduboy are made by the users. Arduboy is based around ATmega32u4 which is the same microcontroller used in Arduino Pro Micro. Although I am not yet capable of making games, I decided to make build the hardware part of it on a breadboard. And yes, it worked! Thanks to MrBlinkyfor creating Homemade Arduboy Package. The hard work was already done.
I had a lot of fun playing some retro games on it. But the breadboard is a bit clumsy with wires running all over. I always wanted to try PCB designing and get it fabricated professionally. So, this is the right time to do it. Also, this is a perfect project as we have to concentrate on PCB design only. In this tutorial, we will make our own version of Arduboy, from circuit diagram to the circuit board!
