Lite-On SK-0002 is an XT/AT switchable keyboard from Lite-On introduced in the year 1990.


This keyboard uses a similar layout to some Focus FK-2001 keyboards, with a big-ass enter key and a full-size backspace key. The backslash key is placed next to the right shift key, which becomes shortened to 1.75 units long. The right shift key is not stabilized.

The keycaps are double-shot ABS, with colored legends on some of the modifier keys. The keycaps appear to be similar to those used in the Focus FK-2001 and some Northgate OmniKey keyboards.

The XT/AT switch is located under the right flip-out foot, with two positions: "A" and "X".

The switches that are used in this keyboard are Alps SKCM White. Some examples use an earlier version of White Alps with dry lubricant on the slider and gold-tone springs.
