Overview

Pico Fighting Board

Open source PCB for arcade sticks using Raspberry Pi Pico.

Introduction

Pico Fighting Board v1.0

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. If that's the case then the Brook line of arcade controller boards must be blushing beet red. The Pico Fighting Board uses the same form factor and layout of the Brook PCBs to maintain compatibility with existing arcade stick cases, wiring harnesses, wire management accessories, etc.

The files for PCB production are in the Releases section. The zip file contains the Gerber and drill files, which is all you'll need if you're soldering SMT components yourself. There are also csv files for the BOM (Bill of Materials) and component positioning for SMT assembly service.

I will also have premade boards periodically available for purchase at https://shop.feralai.com/product/pico-fighting-board.

Firmware

The GP2040 gamepad firmware for Pi Pico/RP2040 has a pre-configured build for use with the Pico Fighting Board, providing support for XInput (PC, Android, Raspberry Pi, etc.), DInput (PC/PS3) and Nintendo Switch. Go to the releases and download the GP2040-PicoFightingBoard.uf2. To flash:

  1. Unplug your Pico Fighting Board.
  2. Hold the BOOTSEL button on the Pico and plug into your computer. A new removable drive named RPI-RP2 should appear in your file explorer.
  3. Drag and drop the GP2040-PicoFightingBoard.uf2 file into the removable drive. This will flash the board.
  4. The board should now be running the GP2040 firmware and should appear as a controller on your computer.

Modification

If you want to modify the PCB layout you'll need the free KiCad software installed. KiCad 5.1.9 was used for these instructions.

Libraries

The libraries folder contains the schematics and footprints required to work with the KiCad source files.

Symbols

  1. From the KiCad Preferences menu, select Manage Symbol Libraries....
  2. In the Global Libraries tab, click the folder icon.
  3. Navigate to this repository, then navigate to libraries/RP-Pico Libraries and select the MCU_RaspberryPi_and_Boards.lib file.
  4. Click OK to finish.

Footprints

  1. From the KiCad Preferences menu, select Manage Footprint Libraries....
  2. In the Global Libraries tab, click the folder icon.
  3. In the Select Libary dialog, navigate to libraries/RP-Pico Libraries/MCU_RaspberryPi_and_Boards.pretty in this repository.
  4. Click OK to confirm the folder selection.
  5. Repeat the same process for the libraries/FeralAI/FeralAI.pretty folder.
  6. Click OK to finish.

Raspberry Pi Pico (RP2040) and Micro-ROS (ROS 2) Integration

The Pico is an amazing microcontroller and I couldn't wait for ROS 2 support or Arduino Core, so here is my approach. Once the Arduino Core for RP2040 is out it will be easier to use micro_ros_arduino.

built-in CMSIS-DAP debugger tailored especially for the RP2040 “Raspberry Pi Pico”

RP2040 has two ARM Cortex-M0+ cores, and the second core normally remains dormant. pico-debug runs on one core in a RP2040 and provides a USB CMSIS-DAP interface to debug the other core. No hardware is added; it is as if there were a virtual debug pod built-in.

    As you can see on the image, this .gitattributes file can change GitHub's language recognizer. This file was organized by me and I put it on my Gist. https://gist.github.com/TitanRGB/61c37bf71159cc9a511558ec7c218339 You can also add it to other projects if you want.

  • Corner screw holes aren't symmetric

    Corner screw holes aren't symmetric

    I don't know if this is intentional, but it seems like the corner screw holes are slightly off-kilter (on the order of 0.1-0.2 mm in various directions). This made it a little bit annoying to 3D print a stand for the board.
