Re: Northgate Omnikeys Focus PCB? Questions?

I've reported one of these in one of my Focus videos, I'm pretty sure it was a 555 one. NG Bob sent me a scan of a Focus-branded PCB on a 1st gen OmniKey, just like this.

Ergodex DX1 review (single key module things)

Today we look at a very unique keyboard – the Ergodex DX1 repositionable "keyboard". Basically a DIY macropad kit, it consists of loose switch modules that can be individually programmed and positioned on the keyboard in whatever way the user desires.

MA are similar but it's not really a dome.
