Welcome to my A320 MCDU project for flight simulation. I used 145x225 mm dimensions.

It works with SIOC and it is compatible with: A320nx in MFS2020, Project Magenta,FSLabs A320, PROSIM, Jeehell FMGS, X-Plane...


I used a 8*9 matrix to connect via IDC 40 pins 2.54mm pitch connector to Opencockpits USBKeys card

Alternatively I recommend to use an Arduino Pro Micro and flash MMJoy2 on it, It will simulate a joystick with many buttons. use it in conjunction of FSUIPC Mouse/button macro and it will work with FSLabs A320 or A32nx.

Here is a tutorial : https://youtu.be/qTx1mLmO3O4

The backlit keys buttons comes with a led under each of them. I used a 12 V DC input to power all the LED and 120 ohm resistors.

You can use instead regular mini push button 6x6 mm but you loose the backlight functionality.

I recommend a square 5 inch 4:3 LCD for the screen.

Thanks to dotsha747 for providing the basic circuit !


It is forbiden to use commercialy, sell or distribute this project under any circumstances.

because the minimal order is 5 units I count on you to give away the remaining boards and only charge shipping !
