This sensor board offers all the needed components to implement the Avago ADNS-9800 High-Performance LaserStream™ Gaming Sensor. High speed motion detection up to 150 IPS.
I originally designed this for a trackball application, which is working great. I paired it up with a Teensy 2.0 from PJRC, which makes mouse integration super easy.
I've also sold a few of the previous version of this board to students at universities who are working on robotics applications. They needed to be able to track the movement of their robot across the floor to see how far it has traveled.
If you are using Arduino or another similar microcontroller that has a native 5V core voltage, you'll need to activate 5V mode by cutting the tiny traces between the three sets of exposed pads on the 3.3V side of the board and adding three solder bridges to the exposed pads on the 5V side of the board. I recommend an exacto knife. Please be careful not to cut any other nearby traces. Both sets of pads can be found on the backside of the circuit board. This is the most common issue that causes non-communication.
