Gameduino 2 is a shield that adds a bright 4.3 inch touchscreen, an embedded GPU, headphone jack, accelerometer and microSD slot to your Arduino - or anything else with an SPI interface. Everything you need to create compelling games – right in your hand.

Sound output is via an amplified headphone jack. The system supports a selection of built-in samples and instruments, and can also play samples from video memory, at up to 48KHz.

The sound and graphics are definitely old-school, but thanks to the latest FPGA technology, the sprite capabilities are a step above those in machines from the past.

Here are some handy stats:

  • Video output is 480x272 pixels in 24-bit color
  • OpenGL-style command set
  • Up to 2000 sprites, any size
  • 256 Kbytes of video RAM
  • Smooth sprite rotate and zoom with bilinear filtering
  • Smooth circle and line drawing in hardware - 16x antialiased
  • JPEG loading in hardware
  • Built-in rendering of gradients, text, dials and buttons

The FT800 graphics co-processor can handle media in several formats to reduce the memory footprint:

  • Decodes JPEGs directly for lossless image loading, decompresses
  • Audio samples can be 8-bit linear, uLaw or ADPCM

Built into the GPU’s ROM are:

  • High-quality fonts in 6 sizes
  • Samples of 8 musical instruments, playable by MIDI note
  • Samples of 10 percussion sounds

And of course you can load your own fonts and audio samples into the 256KB RAM.
