Open ‘Tendo

Board Front

It’s time to share a cool project that’s NOT Amiga related and goes in tune with the “Consoles” in the name here! This is a fantastic recreation of the original 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System Top Loader system! Its open source and very cool! I would love to see more like that and plan to look into doing some of these myself.

Check out the GitHub here: https://github.com/Redherring32/OpenTendo

The design is as true to the original board as possible, with subtle changes where needed to compensate for outdated/unsourcable parts, as well as some improvements. (Expansion audio enabled, and other minor changes)

Since this project is open-source you may do as you like with it, whether that is to make boards for personal use, sell replacement NES boards, or to use the provided info for further custom PCB work/designs.
