Along with a new microcontroller you also get a different type of switch compared to the previous versions. Did you design any of the versions shown here? If you put a scope on the IR choppers you’ll find that the mouse pulses the IR transmitter, you’ll also see that the speed of pulsing changes if you don’t move the mouse for a while. I used it in the heart of Cyclepong and also Three Blind Mice. If you know of any please send me some info using the link at the bottom of the page. It doesn’t have a wheel despite being newer than a lot of the wheel mice here.

Having hacked a few of them I started to notice that every mouse seemed slightly different, but I couldn’t find any information about different designs intellimouxe the web. A significant change I am sure you’ll agree. Perhaps the previous design is a cost reduction too far.
I’ve never really been able to work out why this pulsing takes place.
Microsoft celebrated the millennium by introducing a new microcontroller which needed fewer external components and incrementing the version number to “1.
It doesn’t have a wheel despite being newer than a lot of the wheel mice here.
I used it in the heart of Mucrosoft and also Three Blind Mice. The fastidious probably want to look away now. I suspect it was completely rewritten for different hardware.
The one has some kind ingellimouse stand-alone encoder on the right hand side of the wheel in a little black box. Apologies for this mouse being butchered already. This is the only symmetrical design I have however.
A couple of extra capacitors and a wire link have been added. Oh, and before you ask – I know this is a very stooooopid quest, but don’t take it too seriously OK. If you put a scope on the IR choppers you’ll find that the mouse pulses the IR transmitter, you’ll also see that the speed of pulsing changes if you don’t move the mouse for a while.

The chip is a Zialog mask programmed microcontroller labeled as copyright Seems to have a lot in common with the other early examples here, but some diodes have popped up – I am not sure why. It could be a way of protecting against amient light entering the mouse, or possibly a power saving feature.
Like all intellumouse it has some interesting intellimokse. In fact this is one of the ones in Cyclepong 2. If you have any info please leave a comment. Do you like the tin foil hat for the chip? As I discovered in Cyclepong the software works rather better than the earlier versions. Anyway, to fill the knowledge gap about the different designs – here is my catalog of the classic Microsoft three button mouse mircosoft that I’ve seen. If you know of any please send me some info using the link at the bottom of the page.

The insides of old mice get disgusting. Do you know anything interesting about the Microsoft wheel mouse? Send Iain a private message. Other Microsoft Mice Microsoft did a few designs as well as the classics above.
Perhaps there are more. This has it’s own tiny PCB and a little ribbon cable connecting to the main board. They’ve done something different with the Product ID numbering though! Yes, this one how has a five way connector to the cord including the screen instead of the four way connector in the previous version.

Simple, reliable and very forgiving. The wheel now has an optical chopper on the left hand side. I’ve found four designs for the classic mouse, and a couple of “near neighbours” included below.
