Inside the Ventus

With a fair bit of work involved in hunting down two hidden screws, we were finally able to break the Ventus down into its four major components, and get a look at what is inside.

As we start off, we find that Tt eSPORTS is using the five-million click lifespan version of the Omron D2FC-F-7N. Since the Omron is the most used switch in any mouse, they may as well go with the best.

We can now see the left side button (or the default page back button) is backed with a HC branded switch. This does require slightly more pressure to activate than the Omron switches up front.

The black pad style switches used for the profile, DPI buttons, and under the scroll wheel, all activate easily, and are the most audible switches on the Ventus.

After removing the upper tan PCB, we are able to get a view of the sensor in charge of tracking what you want the Ventus to do. Here we find the Avago ADNS A9500, which is a very good sensor, it just does not offer the range the 9800 offers.

Tt eSPORTS has chosen to go with the SoNiX SN8F2288F6 MCU as the eight-bit CMOS style MCU for the Ventus communications. This is also what gives us the 128kb of onboard memory.

After adding the top layer PCB back to the lower section of the Ventus, as we round the last side of the interior, we can see that both the HC switch and the Omron switch match to those we found on the other side of this ambidextrous mouse.

Now that it's all back together and connected to the PC, we see the Ventus has come to life. As for the lighting, all three sections can be individually illuminated or turned off, and by default, the Battle Dragon is in a breathing or pulsing mode.
