SIIG MiniTouch Plus is a compact rubber dome keyboard sold by SIIG; it is a rebadged BTC 5100C. The typical customer for these keyboards was industry and retail, due to the compact size and durability.
The MiniTouch Plus was introduced shortly after the MiniTouch, and was sold for a much greater length of time (seven years instead of one year). Where the MiniTouch was beige, the MiniTouch Plus is dark grey; instead of a ridged area at the top, there is a pencil tray. The layout is somewhat different, with the ~ key to the left of '1', a horizontal enter key, and cursor keys no longer in an inverse-T formation.
This version uses a DIN-5 connector. It is SIIG model KB1941, and has part number JK-AB0211. The first purchase order was placed in October of 2002, and the last purchase order was placed in 2008. The original MiniTouch was sourced in January of that year.
MiniTouch PS/2 Plus
This was introduced later in 2005 and offered a PS/2 plug. The last purchase order was placed in 2009. The part number is JK-APS311-S1; it did not have a model number. The PS/2 version seemingly has a less snappy/tactile key press, and is quieter in comparison.
