Inside the Naos 7000




Pulling apart the Naos 7000, we find a layout that is almost spot-on to the Naos 8200. However, the PCB color has been changed, and under the top layer of PCB, there is a new sensor tracking the movements.




The pair of buttons on the left of the mouse are backed with TTC red switches. These require medium pressure to activate, and give off an audible click when pressed.




The DPI selector buttons are backed with Pi white switches. These take very little pressure to activate, but also offer an audible click when pressed.




The left click button is backed with an Omron D2FC-F-7N; these have a twenty million click lifespan.




Moving down to the heel of the mouse, we find the ARM ST32F103 MCU that runs at 32MHz, is 32-bit, and is also where the 128kb of onboard memory is housed.




Here is the Avago ADNS3310 optical sensor. The lettering is on the right side, but due to the light gold color of the printing, it is tough to make out. This is what will be tracking all the movements, and translating them to the MCU.




As we finish the tour inside of the Naos 7000, we find the same two million click lifespan Omron switch under the right click button.




When powering things up to make sure we got everything back together right, and the mouse is fully functional, the LED lighting turns on, and the logo and scroll wheel are now backed with blue LEDs by default. If this isn't your first choice in colors, don't worry, there are 16,799,999 other choices to pick from.
