Inside the Maurus X
To help add some heft to the Maurus X, there are some steel plates screwed into the bottom of the top half of the mouse. Of course this is not an adjustable system as getting to this point will definitely void your warranty.
For the M1, M2 and DPI buttons, you can see there is a group of springs and paddles that transfer the click of the button to the smaller switches on the lower half of the Maurus X.
Here we have the lower section of the Maurus X. This is just an orientation photo to help show where all of the chips, switches, and how the sensor is laid out.
Just in front of where the USB 2.0 cable plugs into the PCB there is the first of two Omron D2FC-F-7N switches, this one under the left click button of the Maurus X.
While the rotation of the wheel is tracked with a TTC switch, the middle click is backed with the small brown pad style switch. These are the same switches used for the M1, M2 and DPI buttons.
The Avago ADNS 3090 optical sensor is in control of tracking your every movement. It can take 20 G lateral acceleration, tracks up to 60 IPS, and offers 4000 DPI at its maximum setting. There are also the three switches around it that the spring and paddles from the top activate.
Here we have the NXP LPC11U14H 32-bit ARM processor next to the 12MHz clock generator crystal that will do all of the communications and holds 32KB of memory for onboard programming.
Here we have the Atmel ATMLH224 LPC Microcontroller. This plays along with the NXP Cortex M0 processor to get the job handled for all of the functionality going on at once with the Maurus X.
When the mouse is first powered up, with or without the drivers installed, the lighting of the GX Gaming logo is very dim at full illumination. It is not until you stop the breathing mode of the LED system that you will finally get the full on ability of that LED to make the glow much brighter than in this image.
The center ring of the scroll wheel as well as the sides of it will glow very brightly and are much easier to see, even in the breathing mode. This is also the intensity of the GX Gaming logo once you disable flashing.
