A PCB design to put MJoy in CH ProThrottle
This is my project as attached. The board sits within my CH Pro Throttle base. The top 15 pin Dsub takes information from my CH F-16 Fighterstick, the lower one takes information from my rudder pedals and up to 25 other buttons (none of which I have) and the other connectors take the information from the Throttle itself. I think the wiring is correct, but if anyone would like to check it I would appreciate it. (I have yet to join the Ground wire to the USB pins. I also have to put in jumpers to cope with Centre, Mode, and and On/Off button - the last one so that I do not have to connect/disconnect the USB port to work the initialize and re-centre functions.)
I am going to have little flying jumpers (made from ribbon cable) for many of the connections from the 15 pin Dsub connections, especially if I stay with a single sided board.
As for the diodes, you are saying that they are just to help eliminate little spikes as buttons are pressed and released? That would make sense, because otherwise I could see no "logical" reason that we should need them. (Edit: see later posts. The diodes and some "hidden" 10k resistors are very important)
