The tada68 kit that comes with really nice dyesub cherry profile keycaps, an option for an aluminum case, and a very useful yet compact layout.

Super popular and very affordable board that has probably gotten many people into DIY keyboard projects.

Sorry, brainfart. I mean usable PINS, not keys. I think there was discussion in the thread about the number of pins, but can't find it. So the power for all of them would come from the VCC, and all the inputs would be, if its 14 inputs, up to 14 squared which is 196 keys? that doesnt make sense to ...

Another quick question if you know the answer, since this has about 18 usable pins, from my basic grasp, does that mean a keyboard matrix could use 9*9=81 possible inputs/keys, or does that mean it would be able to accept 18*18=alot of possible keys.

Cheaper Teensy Alternative?

I recently cut apart an AT101W in order to make a 61 key keyboard, but I was wondering if this
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012FOV17O
would be a viable alternative to the Teensy.

Thanks for the help in advance
