Inside the Lumenata Pro
After removing five screws, the halves can be separated. We are very familiar with dual PCB designs, but with so much going on in this design, they had to employ a third PCB and a second Sonix MCU.
This is a view of the PCB from the top of the mouse. There are pad switches used under the M and P.S buttons. The page forward and back buttons use YSA switches, and we can see the first of two Sonix SM8 MCUs used to control all of the features.
The third switch type in this design is this Omron D2FC-F-7N used under the left-click button. Without a specific number rating, it means this has a five-million click lifespan. Just in front of the Omron switch, you can see the pad switch used for the four-way scroll wheel.
We did have to bend a rather large LED out of our way for this shot, but beneath the LED is the Pixart/Avago ADNS 9800 laser sensor that is top of the line when it comes to laser sensors.
This arrangement of plastic, arms, and switches allows the DPI selector to run through the four programmable levels. When you move the switch, the arm moves and hits one of those tiny red switches to activate that function. For those still keeping track, this is switch type four.
We noticed this as we made our way around the heel and back up the right side. Accidents can always happen in assembly, but in this instance, they almost completely severed the white lead as they pinched it in the frame when setting the screws.
We found the second Sonix SN8 MCU not too far away from the laser sensor. With so much going on, one MCU just wasn't enough.
The TTC switch beneath the scroll wheel is the fifth type of switch we have seen, and there is still more to go.
To match the left side, the right button also uses an Omron switch. The pair of buttons way off to the right, on top of the mouse, is backed with the blue switches. This is the sixth type of switch and manufacturer found in this design.
With everything reassembled, we powered up the Lumenata Pro and gave it a spin. From the front of the mouse, we can easily see the X and Y grids are filled with red and green LEDs, and down the side, we have all four DPI indicators lit.
From this angle, we can also see the profile indicator light next to the M button. Depending on what mode you are in, this light can also be green, blue, pink, or cyan. There is also the tiniest slit in the scroll wheel that allows just a bit of red LED to peek through.
