One of the most noticeable new features is the 70 mm hole pattern incorporated in the board. This is to make life simpler in some specific situations for the one designing cases, as well as yourself! Typical 70 mm – M5 bolt pattern will not be obstructed by the board and bolts can freely pass through.

Two other added features are the USB breakout board and the on/off switch connector. Both making able to position an auxiliary switch and USB connector freelyOn the backside of the board, the JST connectors are placed for connecting buttons. These industry standard connectors will be included with the Blue Marlin.

Detailed specs to follow soon!

      For now it will act as an keyboard, but we will be looking at a joystick controller also. It will also have an x- and y-axis (mouse).

    I’m really interested in this. Can you tell me what the maximum number of inputs it supports without matrix wiring.

    I’ve got a wheel with 24 different inputs that I’d like to use this on

      Hi Mark,

      32 buttons, 4×8 matrix, rest are direct connections (encoder, toggle, mouse)

          Hi Mark sorry for the slow reply. The matrix wiring is done inside of the board. They are available now.
