    Does the catch system catch all of the coolant? I want to do this, but it looks like it would splash all over the floor.

    The documentation seems a bit light. You program the device to be one of a set of predefined HID device types…
    0000 = Keyboard
    0001 = Game Pad
    0010 = Mouse
    0011 = COMBO
    0100 = JOYSTICK
    0101 = DIGITIZER
    0110 = SENSOR
    0111 = USE CFG
    1XXX = reserved
    The document displays the report format for Keyboard, Mouse and Joystick, as well as an additional Consumer report. The rest of the document describes an example of creating a keyboard.
    Eg The report for Joystick mode…
    0xFD | 6 | Not used | Buttons | X1 | Y1 | X2 | Y2
    No documentation on the other device types. Is “USE CFG” a custom user device and report descriptor? I’m guessing the device using the RN-42-HID talks to it via the serial port.

    Or free adhesive bandages if you really are that dangerous ;)

    Thanks for clearing up the non-quadratureness.
    Any plans on getting the quadrature model? With Z? And higher count?
    You could get these pretty cheap from another source (in kit form) but their price has more than double. Don’t ask their price for a sealed unit.

    Thanks. I disassembled it myself. R1 seems to be the key - it’s the current limit resistor into two LEDs. 150 ohms limits the current to 20mA at 5v.

    Is a schematic available for the encoders? I’d like to try and make it work with 3.3v.

    Any plans for a Bluetooth version?

    The “datasheet” seems a bit light. Do you have the pinouts for the display?
    The flex cable seems to have a solder type end. Is that correct, or can you get connectors for that?

    I don’t understand when a company is struggling financially and laying off staff, it is always the lawyers that are the last to go. Is management too scared to lay-off a lawyer?
    Or do you think they are doing pro bono work?

No public wish lists :(
