Help With VMU Zero Project

Mon Aug 06, 2018 11:33 pm

Here someone managed to fit a raspberry pi zero into a dreamcast VMU.

I want to attempt this project but I am not sure where exactly to get the PCB or the PCB parts.
Also I don't know much about PCBs :)

Any help is appreciated!

Easier but it still seems quite challenging. As the author notes a hot air rework station is pretty much essential. The soldering is pretty fine-pitched so it probably helps if one has good eyesight, a steady hand, the right tools and experience in doing what is being done.

It looks like too much effort for me, and beyond my capabilities anyway, but do let us know how you get on.
