- Low parts count and cost: The system is made of only two chips and discrete components.
- Interrupt driven kernel: No cycle counting required, sound mixing and video generation are all made in the background.
- 256 simultaneous colors: Accomplished by using a simple weighted resistor DAC.
- 5 channels sound engine: The sound subsystem is composed of 3 wavetable channels, 1 noise channel and 1 PCM channel mixed at 15.7Khz.
- MIDI In: With a music sequencer, allows the creation of music directly on the console.
- Retro controllers: The joypad inputs uses standard NES/SNES controllers interface.
- SNES Mouse Support
- SD/MicroSD card interface
- Expandable: I/O lines and peripherals are still available, like the UART and SPI port for one to experiment.
- Emulator: A fully cycle-perfect emulator that support GDB debugging.
- Gameloader: 4K Bootloader that loads and flash games stored on SD cards!
- API: Develop games using an API that provides multiple video modes, sound driver and more.
- Open Source: The software and hardware design are totally free and licensed under the GPL.
