Elite-C - USB-C Pro Micro Replacement - Arduino-compatible ATmega32U4
Looking for an alternative for the Pro Micro that has a USB port that won't break off so easily? Or maybe you want something with the DFU bootloader already loaded onto it? Great, then the Elite-C is for you!
Status (December 4, 2018): Released a small set of extras today. More Elite-C units are on the way, probably available this Friday.
Compatible with all Pro Micro-based PCBs
USB-C port that can’t be ripped off
6 additional ATmega32u4 pins and USB pins broken out
On-board reset button (you can still use the reset button on the keyboard PCB if it has one)
1.0mm thick PCB for slimmer profile (don’t worry, it’s still very solid and doesn’t flex)
Comes with two 12-pin headers and one 5-pin header
Total of 24 I/O pins to work with (6 more than the Pro Micro)
Question: Can I use this on just the master half of a board and use the cheaper Pro Micro on the slave?
Answer: Yes! You can do this without any problems, just remember that the Pro Micro half is flashed using :avrdude, and the Elite-C half is flashed using :dfu.
