Re: Pluggy Reloaded

Post by bmwtcu »

Folks in the US, I have enough parts for 4 Pluggy Reloaded kits after building my own units that I'm putting up for sale. Given the whole USPS backlog, I'm only going to ship USPS Priority flat rate. Sorry, I won't ship internationally. Hit me up with PM or reach out to me on the Discord https://discord.com/invite/XywGzy5K88 if interested. Here's a Youtube video of it in operation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vsnt1ikPrDk Happy Hacking!

Update - added pics of components. Note that as with norgate's kit you will have to resolder the SD card breakout board connector.

Update 2 - First 4 kits sold!

Update 3 - Current status as of 2/20/2021. 1 SOLD, 1 left

Key things to watch out for
1) Install the SD card library (which you can do through Tools>Manage Libraries in the Arduino IDE)
2) Install the Pro Micro Board Addon for the Arduino IDE (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/pr ... boardaddon)
3) When programming the Arduino, the "Board" and "Processor" settings under "Tools" should be set to "SparkFun Pro Micro" and ATmega32U4 (5V, 16 MHz). The 5V bit is particularly important.
4) Make sure to install the correct version of BabelFish based on which ROM you are using
a) ROMv2/3/4, use https://github.com/kervinck/gigatron-ro ... /BabelFish or https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d8v284j9j41b ... WuCUa?dl=0 if you want at67's SDCard Browser support (highly recommended!)
b) SDROM, use ROM BabelFish from at67's SDCard Browser post
5) Format your SDCard as FAT16/32 with official SDCard Formatter (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/)

Thanks for doing this @bmwtcu. Especially since I had problems shipping to the US recently. I like the stealthy black PCBs.

No worries. Thanks to the new SDCard Browser ROM, your Pluggy Reloaded design is even more indispensable than before!

Is there a further spare kit? I just found this thread and it would be very nice to get such kit for my Gigatron.

The top of the page states that there is one left, so it's probably a good idea to send a PM to bmwtcu.

Hi bmwtcu - I would like to get one kit if possible (to Germany). But I cannot send you a PM.

If I try to write a PM I get the message:

Hi, I just noticed your post. I am sorry, but as stated in my post I will not ship internationally. I believe norgate is in Germany and should be able to help with a PCB. Thanks for your understanding.
