Abbility to Change RATE OF FIRE (betwen 2 rates, 15 and 25 for example) directly by pressing program button

The new programming allows you to configure 3 complete seperate firing configurations (firing mode, firing rate, and burst size). To toggle through the presets, you press the tactical button when the gun is on. The LED will flash green indicating which preset you are in (one flash for preset #1, two flashes for preset #2, and three flashed for preset #3).Instructions for configuring the presets are on the wiki:http://code.google.com/p/phenomx7-etrigger/wiki/Home
The 98 pro / A5 board is not nearly similar to the x7 / Phenom family. I disassembled it and recognized absolutely zero major components.
The hardest challenge would presumably be swapping the mechanical mode on the Phenom eGrip with a semi-auto mode (or another slot for programmable firing modes, like on the APE board). Without modifications, I presume the board will either default to the programmed setting, not function on semi-auto, or not function at all. Murphy's Law tells me it's the latter...
I agree. My neighbor has an eGrip for the A5 and it didn't seem to be powered by a Atmel chip. I wasn't able to get too close, but I would guess by the switches used to modify the firing modes, that it is not powered by a microcontroller.
In the Phenom board, there are three electromagnetic relays that are used to turn on the board, and sense when the trigger is pulled. I may have been wrong in how I'm using them (it has been a burning question in my head since I started). Out of the 3 relays, I'm utilizing 1 of them. 2 of the relays appear to be identical; they sense when the trigger is pulled. The other relay does not appear to connect directly to the micro controller (it is used to power the board).On the Phenom, there is a rare earth magnet in the safety switch. When the switch is rotated to full auto, the magnet activates a relay to power on the board. I'm not sure how an APE board is powered on for the x7. It's possible that their board has another relay to sense the mechanical safety-switch position as well as full auto. In other words, this may not be possible for the x7 or Phenom without modifying the hardware on the board.
