Design Your Own Keyboard Pcb

Keyboard pcb design tutorial. It can be described that mechanical design is another half of electrical design. All the key pushes should some way or another be transferred to the pc. In case you do not want to compromise it, it will be good to assemble your own keyboard. If you are wanting to do any diy project, it is. The pcb layout or size you choose when making a mechanical keyboard depends on your desired keyboard size. Let’s start by installing the pcb design software: Since i was very rusty in this field, i needed a refresher on pcb design and keyboard inner workings.

PCB Design for Mechanical Keyboards Pt.1 - Layout Selection and Configuration



In this video, we'll be starting on a design series for mechanical keyboard PCBs. Specifically, I walk through the process of selecting and configuring a layout within Keyboard Layout Editor and then using said layout to generate a reference file we can leverage in the future within Swill's Plate & Case Builder. While these tasks might seem fairly mundane, I think it's important to start with tools everyone is familiar with before delving into the more technical aspects of the process like CAD. Hopefully you'll come along for the ride!

📺 Three things to note as you watch the video:

1. There was so much to fit in this video that I had to be pretty ruthless with avoiding getting bogged down in small details. You will need to spend some time reading the documentation for Ergogen to fill in the gaps.

2. I mentioned battery connectors in the video. I have added the footprints for these to my fork of Ergogen and set them up in the latest config files (also in my repo) but I have yet to order a PCB that uses them. As such the boards you see in the video have the battery soldered directly to the board. I have a doubt as to whether the placement of my connectors on my boards will even allow the battery and connector to fit so please don’t just have my boards built without checking this is being prepared to just solder the battery directly.

3. I glossed over the soldering in this video as I wanted to keep the scope fairly broad and wanted to leave time for looking at the shields, KiCad etc. When soldering the small switches I found I needed to drop the soldering iron temperature to stop burning the pads off the board. The technique for these surface mount parts is basically the same as I show in the video for the hotswap sockets: add solder to the pads, let it cool, then place the part on top of the solder and push the foot down onto it with the iron.

‼️ Most important bit of all. When making these flippable boards the controller goes opposite on one side to the other.

The Factory | Designing a Custom Macro Keypad for KiCad



We designed a custom macro keypad to improve our KiCad workflow. The PCB was designed in KiCad, fitted with rotary encoders, leds and Cherry MX Blue switches all powered by a Teensy board. A custom enclosure was then modelled in RS Design Spark and 3D Printed on our Ultimaker S5.

The KiPad groups all the useful PCB layout functions for the left hand, leaving the right hand free to stay on the mouse - no more jumping back and forth to the keyboard. It has everything we need daily: Lay tracks, change layers, visibility settings, grid/track sizes - there's even media controls for those deep-work tunes.

The Switch Matrix - PCB Design for Mechanical Keyboards Pt. 3



In this video, we'll be reviewing the switch matrix, a design paradigm that is ubiquitous across mechanical keyboards, in preparation for organizing our switches within our schematic and, eventually, printed circuit board. Instead of just laying out the principle plainly, I try to arrive at a wiring strategy intuitively without relying on my experience from my past projects. Let me know what you think in the comments!

DIY Keyboard from Scratch - with QMK and ATmega32U4



Thanks to pcbway.com for sponsoring this video!
It is time for another DIY keyboard build. This time I'm integrating the atmega32u4 directly into the PCB and I'm adding compatibility for a bunch of switches and assembly types. I also made the switch over to QMK firmware, as it offers a ton of features and great customizability.

How to make your keyboard PCB hot-swappable



Quick video that shows how to mod a regular Cherry MX-compatible PCB to be able to replace switches and LEDs while the keyboard is running. All you need are these TE Connectivity Holtite sockets:

---------------------

For switches:

Lead version: TE Holtite 8134-HC-8P3
Also known as: 7-1437514-1 (internal name)
te.com/usa-en/product-7-1437514-1.html

Gold version: TE Holtite 8134-HC-8P2
Also known as: 7-1437514-0 (internal name)
te.com/usa-en/product-7-1437514-0.html

---------------------

For LEDs:

Lead version: TE Holtite 8134-HC-5P3
Also known as: 6-1437514-7 (internal name)
te.com/usa-en/product-6-1437514-7.html

Gold version: TE Holtite 8134-HC-5P2
Also known as: 6-1437514-6 (internal name)
te.com/usa-en/product-6-1437514-6.html

---------------------

You can find authorized resellers of these sockets on the pages I linked.

Enjoy!

------------------------
UPDATE:

It seems that TE has removed some vendors from their website. As far as I know, you can still get these sockets from Digikey ( digikey.com) as well as Mouser ( mouser.com) who ship to US and Europe and many other regions as well, afaik.
Just search for the model numbers I listed above. Note that for LED sockets, you probably have to look for the internal part number.

Also note that I am going to collect a list of compatible PCBs and link it here, soon, as there are reports on reddit where boards like the JD45 or RS78 have holes that are too wide (i.e. the socket falls through). On these things, you'd have to solder the sockets, I guess.

Last but not least, people have asked how to remove a switch when everything is assembled (plate mounted). Personally, I did not have a problem with this, as I started removing them near the stabilizers (which are not plate-mounted .. just press them in and you see the PCB flexing a little ... which yields to the switches nearby getting slightly loose). HOWEVER, there are so-called Keypullers (like this one: elitekeyboards.com/proddata/images/th/kt01_all_th0x0.jpg, or this one: gonskeyboardworks.com/others/135-cherry-switch-puller.html, or this one: 1upkeyboards.com/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=295) which do the job well it seems.

Making a Keyboard Macropad PCB (Kicad 6.0)



Libraries used are Keebio-Parts, keebio-components, marbastlib, and MX_Alps_Hybrid.

github.com/keebio/keebio-components
github.com/ebastler/marbastlib
github.com/ai03-2725/MX_Alps_Hybrid

Get KiCad at kicad.org/

This is a not-so-short unedited "tutorial/walkthrough" of making a 14-key macropad PCB using KiCad, using Kailh hotswap sockets and a pro-micro "Arduino". This is as simple as it gets when it comes to mechanical keyboards.

Make your own analog keyboard PCB (in Kicad) - Part 2 (PCB Layout)



This is part two of my video series all about making analog hall effect keyboards (using Kicad). In this video I cover how to lay out the PCB (keyboard layout, hall effect sensor placement, screw holes, and fiducials). Here's the relevant links from the video:
