NanoLog board for the DE0-Nano

NanoLog rev.3 board

The NanoLog daughter board is a custom circuit board designed to plug on the bottom of the DE0-Nano to allow the use of regular or Deluxe CoCo joysticks.

There are 2 CoCo joystick ports, 3 audio channels, and 1 user header for a total of 8 ADC inputs.

This 2-layer board can be ordered from the OSH Park web site soon for about $44.30 for 3 boards ($14.77 each). The components to fully assemble the board can cost from around $4 up to $18 depending on where you buy the DIN jacks.  All parts are available from Digi-Key.

The header, joystick, and A / V jacks are through-hole mounted, while the resistors are surface-mount.


Summary of the features:

  • 2 CoCo joystick ports (6-pin, 2-buttons)
  • A / V jack for 3-channel ADC.
  • User ADC header


Parts list for 1 board:

  • (1) – 2×13 female header
  • (2) – 6-pin DIN jack

DIGI-KEY Preloaded Shopping Carts for the components that go on a bare NanoLog board:

Why would you need the parts for *3* NanoLog boards? Because the NanoLog PCB supplier (OSH Park) only sells in multiples of 3 boards, and it is cost effective to do the same for the components and send kits or fully assembled units to other people.
