Elite-C v3.1 (USB-C Pro Micro Replacement)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $16.99

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!

Elite-C v3.1 Updates:

  • Fixes issue with Schottky diode as noted in this post
  • Black soldermask instead of blue
  • Blue LED
  • Shorter reset button

Elite-C v2 + v3 Features:

  • Added castellated holes to PCB. For use with low profile builds moving forward; does not affect compatibility whatsoever. :-D
  • Now has LED connected to VCC to indicate if Elite-C is receiving power
  • Fuse added to prevent overcurrent from damaging the Schottky diode and microcontroller


  • Compatible with all Pro Micro-based PCBs
  • USB-C port that can’t be ripped off
  • ATmega32u4 controller
  • DFU bootloader
  • 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)

Can I use this on just the master half of a board and use the cheaper Pro Micro on the slave?

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.
