Main Board

A dream hardware framework for RPi-based audio & MIDI applications.

  • Power converter SIC478 
  • Audio Output DAC  PCM5242 (TI/BurrBrown).
  • Audio Input ADC PCM1863 (TI/BurrBrown).
  • Headphone Amplifier TPA6130 (TI).
  • Standard DIN-5 MIDI ports.
  • USB type B connector for USB-device operation.
  • Ultra-low power & high accuracy RTC RV-3018-C7.
  • CR2032 lithium battery holder.
  • On-board control FDC 20 pin (GPIO, SPI, I2C).
  • On-board display FDC 24 pin (HDMI + I2C).
  • On-board uSDC holder/extender.

Control Board

A fully featured physical user interface that uses well known hacker-friendly parts.

  • 20 x footprint conductive switches.
  • 20 x WS2812 addressable RGB LEDs.
  • 4 x PEC11R rotary encoders with push switch. 
  • 2 x MCP23017 for interfacing everything.
  • 6-pin expansion connector (I2C + GPIO).
  • 5 inch display mounting holes

Thermal Block

A passive cooling system that avoids fans and dust while allowing the RPi4 to work 25% faster.

A solid aluminum thermal bridge that conducts heat from the RPi4 to the aluminum case that acts as a huge heat sink.

It turns V5 into a hot blood device with a cool brain.
