I thought it was a single black box, but upon closer inspection there's a
separate PCB with the Microcontroller and TC358762.

Eric, do you know if it's possible to exchange the panel for another one (and
not just an model with identical features from another vendor, but another
panel with a different mode for instance) without reprogramming the
microcontroller, or is the bridge board tied to the panel model ?
