Inside the Theron Smart Mouse

As a lot of the Tt eSPORTS mice do, the Theron Smart Mouse breaks down into four major components. There are the right and left side components that hold their switches, there is the top section that keeps its switches, and all three also have illumination able areas.

The bottom components of the mouse frame holds two PCBs, the top of which we are covering first. The pair of white HC switches found here work the page forward and page back buttons found on the left side of the mouse.

Tucked in by the pair of black pad switches used for DPI level selection, we find the NXP LPC11U34F ARM Cortex 32-bit MCU that takes control of all of the talking between this mouse and the PC, outside of its Bluetooth functionality.

Moving to the other side of that top PCB, we find yet another white HC switch to back the red button on the right side.

After removing the upper level, we can now see the standard two million click Omron D2FC-f-7N switch used for the left click button.

Since there is a second layer of PCB in this design, in order to actually get an image of the Avago ADNS 9800 laser sensor offered in this mouse, we had to first remove a layer of tape that insulates the open metal from being shorted out.

Under the right click button, we find a matching Omron switch, as it should be, and we also find that the scroll wheel uses a third switch type marked with a W inside of an oval.

The last bit to cover inside of the mouse would be this CSR1011 Bluetooth 4.0 IC. This is a 16-bit processor with built in RAM and ROM space is what will be sending the clicks and movements to whatever mobile device you planned to use to track it with.

Once back together and powered on there is an instant glow of red as the default color, and with it matching the buttons it makes a ton of sense, coming from the lower section of the Theron Smart mouse.

The opposite side also illuminates, and you can see the red coming through the clear scroll wheel as well. What you don't see is the pulsating light of the battle dragon on the heel, and it is also hard to get a good image of the small window behind the page back button that offers four LEDs to denote which DPI level is currently in use.
