The PixArt 3310 DH Sensor - How does it work?

The PixArt 3310 DH Sensor - How does it work?

Each of the DM1 Pro and the DM2 Comfy utilize the PixArt 3310DH which has become known as a sensor which delivers incredible precision in it's sensing capabilities. But did you ever wonder what makes it tick (or click)? For all you technology aficionados that want to see why this sensor can help you nail that perfectly placed no-scope head shot, this description on theory of operation is just plain cool.

 

 

The sensor measures changes in position by optically acquiring sequential surface images (frames) and mathematically determining the direction and magnitude of movement. The Image Acquisition System (IAS) acquires microscopic surface images via the lens and illumination system. These images are processed by the Digital Signal Processor (DSP), to determine the direction and distance of motion. The DSP calculates the Δx and Δy relative displacement values. An external microcontroller reads the Δx and Δy information from the sensor serial port. The microcontroller then translates the data into PS2, USB, or RF signals before sending them to the host PC or game console.
