Open Pinball Project
The Open Pinball Project (OPP) was started in 2012 as a resource for pinball makers to have an inexpensive, fully open sourced project for controlling custom pinball machines. It is currently on a second generation design and has had a successful Kickstarter run of boards and components currently in the hands of makers all over the world.
The OPP hardware is made up of three main components:
- The Processor board is a Cypress Semiconductor CY8CKIT-049-42XX PSoC prototyping board that can be purchased from Mouser or Digikey
- The Interface board allows communications between Processor boards via a custom serial communications protocol
- The Wing boards allow the control of solenoids, lamps, LEDs or input from switches
