Re: Questions about keyboard programming.

Each time, you first wait a couple microseconds (why, I'm not sure, but it is recommended for the matrix to "settle"). It's because a microcontroller is scanning a voltage on an LRC circuit . Typical values are about: R = 33 kΩ, C = 5e-12 F, L = 0.5e-3 H You are interested mostly in the times t1=(-...

If you want, you can use a graphite pencil but make sure it's graphite. You can just rub some on. I have fixed two of these keyboards and I have never had to use anything.

Yes it should fit - there is at least 33mm north of the inner assembly that is free space. The inside height is 24mm. Would someone mind posting the specs and spec tolerances of the ideal solenoid?

I ordered it from Ali. I agree that some first-hand experimentation is probably in order. I don’t mind burning through a solenoid or two. I’d be less enthusiastic about burning through an Xwhatsit board. Confirmed by xwhatsit himself: Those Sparkfun solenoids might not be such a good idea. Unlike t...

My understanding, which is only superficial, is that the unimap "grid" is bigger than the physical keyboard because it's built to support (at least) 2 keyboards with different physical layouts. So each keyboard, either the 4704 or our pingmasters, uses a different subset of the unimap. The important...

I like RAL-7030 "stone gray" as case color.
Model Fs are so easy to modify and they are built to be highly modular. Just fantastic to breath new life into a 33 year old keyboard that is a joy to use.
