Extend RESET & MODE on Argon, Xenon & BoronLTE

Hello,

I need to extend the RESET & MODE button on the Argon, Xenon & BoronLTE, meaning I need to place the buttons elsewhere on the PCB, I’ve been (although fairly painful process) able to solder out wires from the pads of each REST & MODE buttons and connect those to the external push buttons, is there another way, in terms of pragmatically attaching the REST & MODE button functionally to GPIO’s which are a lot more accessible for soldering / wiring out? :slight_smile:

Thanks for your help!

Have you tried using the pins marked MD & RST?

The datasheets are usually a place to look before swinging the soldering iron :wink:
