The Haute Board is a mid-sized controller by Haute42 that is all keys, custom RGB LED included. The switches are hot swappable LEOBOG Graywoods.

With 16 keys onboard, three of those are considered extra keys, and in classic Haute42 fashion, only the attack keys are labeled. Besides that, there are five function buttons, four of which are for:

  1. Turbo
  2. Back
  3. Start
  4. Home

The Haute Board runs on the GP2040-CE firmware with less than a millisecond of latency, thanks to an overclocked polling rate. With multiple SOCD cleaning modes, the Haute Board is also compatible with the Steam Deck, Raspberry Pi, MiSTer, Mac, and Linux.

Your order of the Haute Board should also come with a switch puller, extra switch, a couple of 6 mm button caps, and six rubber feet. Here are some more features of the Haute Board:

  • Built-in embedded web config
  • Button layout swapping
  • Custom M1/M2 keys
  • EXT port

The EXT port is for the insertion of a converter like the BOOTER 5 for PlayStation 5 compatibility.
