Inside the Ventus R
While this parts removal is optional to getting inside of the Ventus R, we still wanted to show that the heel of the mouse is easily removable. The only reason we can see for this to come off is to allow users to 3D print parts for it, to customize the look and feel of the Ventus R.
We had to remove the feet to access four screws, and once they were removed, the mouse splits into two parts. The top half is connected to the main PCB via a tiny cable, and we can see that in the lower section, the sensor has been taped over.
Backing the pair of buttons found on the left side of the Ventus R, we find a pair of iB Blue switches. These require a fair amount of force to be pressed to the point of activation and report that point with an audible click.
The switch under the left click button is an Omron D2FC-F-7N(20M), which offers a 20 million click lifespan. The scroll wheel behind it uses an Alps switch for the rotation and is where the heavily segmented feel comes from.
Removing the tape from the optical sensor, we can see that it has removed a bit of the paint which identifies what sensor it is. It took a magnifying glass to be sure, but we were able to just make out the PMW3310 numbers on this Pixart product.
In control of all of the functionality and where the onboard memory is stored, we find this STM32F MCU. The 32-bit ARM Cortex-M processor runs at 48MHz and sports 256KB of memory for the various profiles, Macros, and basic settings to be saved into.
Under the right click button, we see a match to the Omron we saw on the other side of the mouse, and it is a 20 million click version as well. Just behind the Omron switch is a black pad style switch, which is soft in its actuation force required, and does not offer a click when the button is pressed.
Reassembling the Ventus R and powering it, it comes to life with the glow of red LEDs by default. Both the scroll wheel as well as the logo under the heel plate can be switched to any of the 16.8 million color choices, they can be individually controlled, and there are even preset patterns in which the lighting will be displayed.
