HS60 v2 Preorder

85.00

PREORDER ENDS NOV 7, 2018

ESTIMATED SHIPPING: JAN 2019

  • 60% SMD RGB Hotswap PCB

  • Compatible with QMK firmware

  • Will ship fully complete, with all components in place

  • Built and QA tested at a PCB Manufacturer and QA again in the UK

  • Fits all standard and aftermarket 60% cases.

  • V2 differences:

    • Addition of HHKB Layout PCB

    • ARM Processor (Instead of Atmel)

      • STM32F303 processor

      • ARM M4f core running at 72 Mhz

      • Runs QMK using Chibios ( a real time operating system)

      • it has 256kb of flash memory vs 32kb of the Atmel ( this allows the user to enable all possible options of QMK)

      • 40kb of SRAM vs 2.5kb of the Atmel ( this allows the OS to run which enables threading)

      • ISSI led driver for the RGB

      • QMK with almost all its features has been ported to ARM ( Plank uses an ARM processor as well). Yiancar is actively contributing to the development of the firmware.

      • Fully programmable through config.qmk.fm

    • Built and QA tested at a PCB Manufacturer and QA again in the UK

    • Matte Black PCB

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS

Q1: What about other layouts?
A1: We now have ANSI, ISO, HHKB layouts. We’re sticking with standard layouts for now, as we can’t add multiple layouts to the same PCB as the hotswap sockets can’t overlap. Trying to cover all possible layouts would be impossible so it’s standard for now. if there are enough people wanting other layouts, we may look into them.


Q2: What happened to the upside down esc and 1 keys?
A2: It’s due to the placement of the USB connector following the universal GH60 standard. The hotswap sockets can’t fit otherwise!


Q3: Is it difficult to collect all the parts needed for a full keyboard and to put it together using this PCB?
A3: Any other 60% case you find that has standard mount holes, and any standard plate, will work with this PCB


Q4: Does it have underglow?
A4: No as the power draw for all the in-switch LED’s is quite high already. There are exposed pins to add underglow RGB strips, but this is experimental andup to the user.


Q4: Can I set the RGB?
A4: Yes! It comes with different styles as well as colour picker. QMK community is working toward a hosted software to do that as well but its still under development.


Q5: USB-C? or Mini
A5: Mini for now


Q6: Do i need diodes, resistors, etc?
A6: The board is fully complete and ready to go!
