Hi guys

I've been sent a PCB board for the 737 FMC, but I'm told it uses a matrix.. Although the device can be attached to Arduino megas, will this work with mobi? If not, doesn anyone know what will?

Hi Ridgeandgable,

a button-matrix is not supported by MobiFlight. Sorry.

I can recommend you a PCB, which I have used myself for my FMC and works flawlessly:

Hi Stephen

Thanks for that. Did you use Arduino boards for it or the proper I/o boards?

I use my FMC with two MEGA-Modules and it works fine.
There are 69 Buttons and 5 LEDs, so one MEGA is not enough.
Matching the pcb there are still the front panels from the same supplier.
There is also a reference to a matching LCD, which I have also bought.
On this site, there are also the assignments for the plugs, which are connected with ribbon cable.
I am very satisfied with the device.
Grüße,
Stephan
