Oh, totally forgot to answer. I don't know if TMK does, but even if it doesn't it won't be a problem to implement it. Those RGB LEDs have a single data input pin and expect three bytes for RGB. Their timing is a bit difficult, but that also means that it only takes 3,75µs to update the color so I ca...

So, what's the idea with the LED? I don't know :lol: It really depends on the case and plate design but I think a few RGB or RGBW LEDs will be pretty flexible. My plan is to have a little hole or slit in the mount plate to show the current layer/status. Didn't think about HOW exactly I'll represent...

I changed the 90 degree switches back and added another RGBW LED on the right. I really hope the LEDs turn out good, I'm still worried whether it's a good idea because it most likely won't work without a mount plate... You can dim the LEDs, but plain 5050 (5x5mm) LEDs aren't pretty to look at :) EDI...

Oh, thanks, I wasn't aware of that. It just made the routing a bit more compact, but in that case I'll revert all switches to 0/180 degree alignment.

Aaand I'm back once again :? I stumbled across a box with the components to assemble ~25 THKBs today which motivated me to work on the PCB again.

Re: [WIP] THKB - Tiny Hacking Keyboard - 40%

I don't think we have the exact same one since mine is at least 15 years old. It's a WTCP-S and says "Serie 02.93" underneath :D

I'm using a 1.2mm round sloped tip (4PTF7-1):

Yes, it even fits between the PCB and mount plate. I might change it to some smd crystal in the future though.

Oh and you will also need some jumper wires due to my retarded order of ISP pins on the PCB.
I will change the order of those in the next PCB revision.

Ask for 1206 (3.2x1.6mm) 22Ω ones. I would offer you to send them as a letter but the shipping alone is more expensive than two resistors :lol:

You can always check the pads though. The pad for the cathode end is a rectangle :D

You guys are too fast for me. Yes, there is a black line on the diode that you just line up with the line on the PCB.
EDIT: That reminds me, I have to change the size of the diode footprint. The pad distance can be a lot smaller for those tiny diodes.

Swillkb just generates a top plate based on a keyboard-layout-editor.com code, then generates mathching middle layers and bottom plates. Basically what I'm, I guess, is what are the dimensions of the PCB? Then I can just check it against the interior dimensions of the middle layers. Once I've got i...

I never used the swillkb generator so I can't really help with that. I just checked the distance between the switch holes and the PCB edges. It sticks out 1.7mm on the left and right, 3.5mm on the top and 0.7mm on the bottom. If you simply round those values up (or add 1mm each) you should be on the...

Yes that is possible too. I actually tried it but found it weird to use.
The 1.25/1.75 layout works really well for me because the big keys right under the thumbs are the most used ones.
My current layout has space and FN1 there (for the "missing" numbers and punctuation).

I'm using the same firmware, so as far as I can tell you can use the same stuff as planck.

After typing on the THKB all day long the HHKB is disconcertingly big and I keep pressing win/alt for punctuation :mrgreen:
So switching to the THKB is easy for me, but going back to the HHKB quite difficult lol.
