The minitel is a french great-uncle of internet that comes back frequently in retro computing projects. This well documented old guy has a peripheral port from which we can access to screen display and keyboard input, so it can basically be used for any terminal application. The semi-graphic mode also makes GUI development possible with 240x144 resolution and 8 colors grayscale.
This board is here to make reuse project accessible for most makers.
My past projects with minitel were always ending up as breadboard prototypes with lot of wires, external power supply and arduino or raspberrypi, etc. This kind of bulky delicate stuff is hard to take out of the garage and can dissuade software devs from working with. Well, here comes the idea.
The objective was to make a dev board: - as generic as possible, to support the widest range of projects, - accessible for the greatest number of people, being arduino IDE and micropython compatible with integrated USB port - self-powered and with a good form factor so that it can be used as a dongle plug and play on minitel which have power output on DIN port
As far as I know, this board is one of a kind !
