STM32F103C8T6 Orao

For this project I used a development board with STM32F103C8T6 microcontroller also known as "Blue Pill" and 23LC1024 serial SRAM. Both can be purchased on eBay for as little as 6 USD. 23LC1024 is optional, but without it Orao will have only 17 KB instead of 32 KB RAM.

Electronic schematic

The circuit generates a composite PAL video signal, and the programs are loaded via the analog audio input as with the original Orao computer.
