I'm working on a board where I will need to mechanically enable/disable some functionality/portions of the hardware. I would like to have the functionality of a DIP switch (see below) but it feels so 1980s.
It seems out of place next to all my ultra-miniature leadless package parts. Has anyone come across anything more "modern" looking and that won't require me to use a fine-tipped pen to switch?
- The switches are for an in-house test board (meant only for internal engineers)
- I (the people paying me) would prefer it to cost as little as possible (so there is no time for me to implement any software solutions)
- The switches will be infrequently changed from states (some only a few times in their life)
- Size is a moderate concern. If it is too big it will look awkward next to all my small parts (and possibly make my board top-heavy)
