Looking for DSLite membrane dimensions.

Post by ICMF » Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:16 pm

I need a favour from someone with DSL button membranes. (anybody stocked up for a Minty Pi? :)) Nothing too complicated - just the diameter of the contact pills and the distance between them, for both ABXY and the Dpad. As I've mentioned on the forum, I'm trying to design a custom PCB for my build, but I need to know contact size and spacing to do that.

I've got you covered, note that these are taken from the PCB contact points which cover the maximum distance of the pads you show; the actual conductive pad is slightly smaller.

D-Pad:
Y Dimension: 18mm
X Dimension: 4mm

ABXY:
Y Dimension: 20mm
X Dimension: 5mm

Awesome! Thanks!

Just to clarify, is that Y-dimension edge-to-edge, or centre-to-centre?

Edge to edge, the farthest distance of the contacts. center to center would be 14mm for the D-Pad and 15mm for ABXY
