A microATX mainboard for the Neotron Pico - a modern 'retro' home computer, powered by the Raspberry Pi Pico and designed to run Neotron OS, a CP/M alike OS written in Rust.
You get the bare PCB, loaded with all the SMT parts. In the photo you will see that U401 is missing. This is the RGB video buffer, and JLCPCB were out of stock on the last batch. I have some spares and I will fit this part for you before shipping.
You must supply your own:
The complete parts list is available on my Github repo. All parts available from the usual catalog retailers.
You can flash your Raspberry Pi Pico with CircuitPython and play with the hardware, or you can load it with the very incomplete and work-in-progress Neotron OS, which is open-source and also available on my Github. So far it will display some text on screen, as shown in the photos, and show a simple prompt you can use to enter commands. This is a platform for hacking on embedded software, not (yet) a finished product!
The Raspberry Pi Pico-W will also work, but I have no software support for Wi-Fi in Neotron OS at this time.
So that people had access to a modern computer built from readily available parts, but that was simple enough for one person to understand.
It is perhaps the only open-source microATX form-factor computer powered by the Raspberry Pi Pico.

This is not my day job, so packages take me a couple of days to put together a ship.
