This page contains a selection of Cherry keyboard and switch catalogues, price lists, brochures and design drawings. All additional material is welcome as there are still substantial gaps in the data, in particular the late 1970s (covering the introduction of M8, M9, M10 and M11) and the mid 1980s (covering the introduction of MX and its early range of types).
The catalogues cover keyboards, switches and keycaps; the switch types found in each one are listed beside each entry. The country of origin of each is listed, as there may be product availability discrepancies between the two countries.
