LISY MPUs

What is 'LISY'? It stands for LInux for SYstem.

It is a replacement MPU for Gottlieb, Bally, Stern or Williams pinball  maschines


LISY uses a Raspberry PI Zero which is integrated in a self designed PCB, used softwarebasis ist Raspbian. You can either use the original Gameplay by using PINMAME romsets or create your own Gameplay by using the Mission Pinball Framework

*********************

What do you need?

Basic soldering skills (only one of the integrated circuits are in SMD size)

Possibility to read/write micro  SD cards

Wireless LAN oder LAN if you want to use LISYcontrol

A pinball machine supported by LISY

LISY MPUs

MPUs based on pinmame and Raspberry PI

-> LISY1 for Gottlieb System1

-> LISY80 for Gottlieb System80

-> LISY80 LED for Gottlieb System80 (Prototype)

-> LISY35 for Bally

-> LISY35 SMD for Bally ( with preassembled SMD components)

-> LISY_Home for your self designed pinball

-> LISY_Mini for controlling external HW over USB

-> APC for Williams pinballs with integrated LISY


Summary

LISY replaces your original pinball MPU

Gerber data for PCB included

You just need to buy the needed components; download and install the LISY image and do the soldering.

I do provide all the software you need for free.

 The PICs can be programmed using the integrated programmer of LISY

Costs?

One PCB is around 35€ (you need to order at least three PCBs at 'aisler.net')

The needed components are around 50€, depending on where do you buy the components and what LISY variant do you want to have.

LISY is integrated part of pinmame, have a look at the source code here

List of (standard) components is documented.

As the solution is using pinmame gameplay is 100% compared to the original game Optional you can use 'Freeplay'; 'Ballsave' is still 'work to do', if you are interested in that feature please send me a mail.

There is a Webinterface integrated ( 'LISYcontrol'). This means, by connecting LISY to you local LAN/WLAN it is possible to control each lamp and each solenoid via Webbrowser. Status of switches are shown on one page, and switch descriptions can be edited in a'csv' table.
