Hello, I have an idea for an embedded usb-a Expansion Card to hide your wireless mouse dongle. I am not sure what is the average size of a mouse dongle is, but once I get that it should be a very simple design. Would this design be eligible for a grant or is it too similar to a regular A to C expansion card. Thank you!
Check out these threads for ongoing work on this:
I saw a comment that people want to hide their Logitech Unifying dongle (and other random small easy to lose dongles. Tried a design with a standard USB-A 2.0 socket recessed inside. Not enough room for another connector to expand outward sadly.
It will need some improvement, the socket is probably too high. I’d replace it with a laptop usb-a socket that sits dropped into the board. If you have a suggestion for a part, let me know!
I am a firmware developer and electrical engineer currently running a niche PC peripherals company. After seeing the Framework Laptop, I am looking into developing a replacement/alternative to 2.4GHz dongles. I don’t like having a dongle sticking out of a USB A port. USB C dongles stick out even further. Avoiding the dongle by using Bluetooth results in noticeable input latency.
Anyone else here agree?
Unfortunately, a USB port was too thick to contain fully within the Expansion Card, so I che…
Damn just late to the party lol
Not sure if you are talking about the larger one or the smaller one but
these are pretty small.
Their website seems to only list the std size.
Don’t be so sure, I found some glue, or more appropriately, mounting tape being used in the Framework.
