The project goals were to design and build a LEGO® minifigure sized development board incorporating as many features as possible within the size constraint. Along with the physical board design and layout, software and firmware was developed to allow programming using CircuitPython or Arduino. Included on the board is a simple built in LED, an APA102 Red/Green/Blue LED, a builtin button, a reset button, the SWD Cortex programming/debugging port, and access to as many pins as possible. Following as much of the reference designs for the microcontroller as possible, the board includes analog reference decoupling/filtering capacitors, an analog to digital ferrite bead, debounce circuitry for the reset and user buttons, etc.
I love LEGO bricks and minifigures. I love microcontrollers, DIY electronics, and challenges.
This is the only LEGO minifigure sized development board - that I know of. The design is based around the classic 1980's 'spaceman'. When assembled the rocket whooshing around the planet is backlit with the built-in LED.
One Mini SAM M4 Board in Matte Black preloaded with a UF2 bootloader and CircuitPython 4.x.x.
