Step 1: Welding circuit

Soldering part is simpler, welding sequence according to the principle of component level from low to high, the first welding eight resistance, is important to use multimeter to confirm resistance is correct, D4, D5 R13 R14 can temporarily not welding, integrated circuit chips can temporarily not inserted

Step 2: Mechanical assembly

The red line is connected to the 3V positive power supply, the yellow line grounding, excess wire an be used for motor wire.

Step 3: The installation of a photoelectric circuit

Photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes (note polarity) is reverse-mounted on the PCB, and the ground distance is about 5 mm, both photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes are 5 mm distance. Finally, you can power test.

Step 4: Vehicle debugging

The right direction is along the universal wheel direction, if you press and hold the left photoresistor, the wheels on the right side of the car should be rotated. Press and hold the right photoresistor, the wheels on the left side of the car should be rotated, if the car driving back, can also exchange the wiring of two motors, if the one side normal and the other side back up, as long as you can swap wiring of back side.

Picade DIY kit - 10 inch display (Picade 10 inch)
Description:

The ultimate desktop retro arcade machine! Picade is a Raspberry Pi-powered mini arcade that you build yourself, with authentic arcade controls, a high resolution 4:3 display that's ideal for retro gaming, and a punchy speaker to hear those 8-bit game soundtracks at their best

Picade is now Raspberry Pi 4 compatible and includes a new USB-C version of Picade X HAT!

The all-new Picade has been completely redesigned, from the inside out! There's new artwork, a new display and display driver board, dedicated power button, an all-new Picade X HAT (now with USB-C), easier wiring, easier access to the interior of the cabinet, beautiful new packaging, a bunch of extra goodies (stickers and an enamel Picade pin), and a gorgeous Picade poster and assembly instructions.

Picade comes in kit form, and it'll take around two to three hours to build. The cabinet is made from powder-coated MDF, giving it a quality look and feel similar to a full-size arcade. All you'll need to add is a Raspberry Pi, USB-C power supply, and micro-SD card.


You can watch a video on  Picade at https://youtu.be/5iUuOH1Ip4A

Cabinet features

  • Black, powder-coated panels
  • Acrylic marquee and console with authentic artwork
  • Push-fit arcade buttons
  • Joystick with black ball top
  • 3" speaker (5W, 4Ω)
  • Easy access with removable back panel
  • Dedicated illuminated power button
  • Grippy rubber feet
  • Dimensions: 350x230x210mm

10-inch display features

  • 1024x768 (4:3 ratio) IPS (wide viewing angle) display
  • Pimoroni-designed and manufactured HDMI display driver board and keypad controls
  • Powered by micro-USB cable (included) from your Pi

Picade X HAT features

  • Easy DuPont connectors for buttons and joystick
  • Push-fit speaker terminals
  • I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono)
  • Power management, power switch pins, and power button
  • 4-way joystick inputs
  • 6 player buttons
  • 4 utility buttons
  • Metal standoffs to hold your Picade X HAT securely

Extras

  • Picade enamel pin badge
  • Pimoroni Super Sticker Selection
  • Picade poster / assembly instructions

What's new!?

The cabinet is more compact, so it fits more neatly on your desk, but has a higher resolution 8"  or 10" display (1024x768). The display is driven by a new Pimoroni-designed and manufactured driver board, with keypad controls. It's an IPS panel, so it looks great from any viewing angle!

The all-new Picade X HAT is packed full of useful features. We've moved from more fiddly screw terminals to simple DuPont connectors that just push in, and the speaker terminals are the same easy push-fit connectors that we use on pHAT BEAT.

There's dedicated power management on-board Picade X HAT; just plug your micro-USB power supply into the HAT and it'll power your Pi through its pins. The power button connected to the HAT means that once your Pi is safely shutdown, the power will be cut completely to the Pi. A simple press of the power button will boot your Picade up again.

The new buttons in Picade are lower profile, and the new joystick has a single connector rather than the eight spade connectors on our previous Picade joystick.

A gorgeous new neon-look Picade logo on the marquee, and rainbow stripes on the console and screen-surround, evoke classic consoles, as do the assembly instructions and poster.

Building your Picade

We hope the included assembly instructions have everything you need to build your Picade, but we've also filmed a complete build video of Picade that you can watch as you build and learn some handy tips and tricks. Find it at https://youtu.be/gTgu1fUVsmw

The sections are also available separately in a playlist here.

We've also put together an online tutorial that incorporates the assembly instructions, important tips and amendments, and the videos for each section, so do check that out!

Software setup

We recommend the RetroPie operating system for your Picade. You can download it from the RetroPie website and then burn it to a micro-SD card with Etcher.

Connect a USB keyboard to your Pi, and connect to Wi-Fi in the RetroPie menu. Press F4 to exit to the terminal and then type curl https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash to run the Picade HAT installer.

Reboot your Pi, if it doesn't prompt you to. Press the "Alt" key on your keyboard and then select "Configure input" to configure your Picade's controls. You'll find that the sound and power button should both be working now too!

Notes

If your Picade display doesn't show anything when you first power it up, then it could be because the HDMI display is not being detected by the Raspberry Pi. This can happen because power isn't supplied to the USB ports on the Raspberry Pi for the first few seconds of booting. The solution is to edit the /boot/config.txt file on your RetroPie SD card, and add hdmi_force_hotplug=1 on a new line at the bottom of the file.

If you'd like to design your own artwork for your Picade, then we've made a handy PDF that has the outlines and dimensions of the marquee, screen shim, and console. You can download it from the Picade HAT GitHub repo here.

We know you love retro gaming!
Check out our Arcade section, whether you just want a retro control or a mini DIY arcade cabinet we have what you're looking for.

Did somebody say Robotics?
We've got some cool beginner's items in our robotic section

Our Kits come with the latest version of NOOBS – New Out Of the Box Software pre-installed, While we will certainly try our best to assist with any software related questions we cannot offer any kind of official support on community driven, open source, or non-PiShop produced proprietary software.
NOOBS, Raspbian, LibreELEC and OSMC are all open-source software, please visit the developer's respective websites for more info.

So what is NOOBS anyway?In Short, NOOBS is an installer, when you switch your RPI on NOOBS will guide you through the installation of your software of choice... seem confusing? Don't worry it really couldn't be easier

  • Raspbian - a full desktop for normal day to day work. Email, internet, office suite, programming etc.
  • LibreELEC RPi2 - our preferred version of Kodi for use as a media centre.
  • OSMC Pi2 - for more control of your Kodi media centre
  • Windows 10 IoT Core - nope this is not windows 10. It simply enables you to run projects and apps for the IOT environment.
  • Lakka and Recalbox - retro gaming for the RPi.
