Hello from Princeton TX

Recommended Posts

Well, I missed the Arduino craze, if that's a thing? 

 

Anyway, I've just purchased the following.

No real Coding skills, no real knowledge of Microcontrollers. 

 

I do have ASSC. in electrical electronics, and about 20 years experience in component level troubleshooting. 

 

My goal, or my attempt will be to replicate an early 1980 pinball MPU to control lights, solenoids, and read switch matrix's to ultimately control a pinball machine. With the extended goal of adding music, and sounds, change rule sets etc.

I know this has been accomplished with the Arduino Mega, I don't know if it can be done with what I've got coming in the mail this coming week. But I'm willing to learn, and ask questions.
