(new!) tinkerBOY Controller V3.0 for Game Boy Zero mod. Designed and built from scratch to make it easier to build your own Game Boy Zero. Uses a USB hub to join both the controller and the audio chip for a single 2-wire data connections to the Raspberry Pi. The USB audio is configured to work out of the box without soldering any analog volume wheel so you can test it immediately.
- Atmega32u4 chip for the controller inputs.
- C-Media USB Audio with builtin power amp.
- FE1.1s USB hub.
- Digital volume enabled by default but can be easily disabled via hotkey button or serial com in order to use an analog volume wheel.

tinkerBOY Controller V3.0 needs only two wire connections to the Raspberry Pi’s data pins to enable usb sound, controller inputs, and usb hub. A tinkerBOY Speaker 4O2W is highly recommended for better sounds.
