The 68 key 'compact' LFK78 PCB, F-keys have been removed from the left side. Compatible with the VA68M case. Feature list. RevK adds split backspace, with the following caveat: the right 1u switch is rotated 180°, and does not support backlighting.
You solder the 70+ SMD components. The MCU and LED controllers are now QFN packages with 0.5mm pitch. Reliable assembly requires a reflow oven, hand soldering would very difficult. Loose components are availble for purchase.
Board is tested and ready for switches.
Controller for single color switch LEDs. LEDs can be individually controlled, but the firmware currently does not take advantage of that feature. Backlighting is not compatible with Alps or Matias switches.
RGB LED controller plus 28 RGB LED installed on underside of PCB. This will provide an underglow effect through the bottom or sides of case. This effect is not visible when used with a VA68M case.
