I just started working on building my first pinball machine, while I work on the design and the theme I wanted to start thinking about electronics and sourcing those for this project. I saw that Team Pinball used a Raspberry Pi hooked up to their proprietary board, but I am wondering if you could do something similar with a P-ROC board from Multimorphic and a Raspberry Pi.
I've heard some criticism about using a raspberry pi, but I feel like boards are a pretty big expense with the production of a pinball machine and it might be a really good way to cut costs, especially for a beginner who has limited experience working with assembler. It may not be the best way of doing things, but I think it might be a good idea.
Please share your thoughts!
