SvOlli Posted April 19, 2020 Share Posted April 19, 2020 (edited) Hello everyone! I was using the coronavirus lockdown time to code for a project, I'd had lying around for a couple of weeks. A simple and versatile ROM dumper that's rather easy to build. It just consists of two parts: a Teensy++ 2.0 and a cartridge connector. It is arranged on a small through hole soldering board, and for better handling a 3D printed cartridge slot was added. Right now the software written for Linux is working fine and can dump 2k/4k and F8/F6/F4 cartridges, but the software is written in a way that should make it rather easy to port the software to other platforms (just the function for setting the serial configuration is specific) and to add dumpers for other bankswitching types. To keep things simple, the code for the host side is written in C for a small command line tool, the microcontroller is a simple Arduino sketch. I'm a bit undecided on where to go from here. Would it make sense to get set up a git repository with the build instructions and the code for the microcontroller and the frontend dumper? Or has any cartridge that's available already been dumped? Here are some images. The board without a cartridge: The board with a cartridge: The underside of the board: Edit: the project is now published on github and my own git server.
