SMK/Alps TKL PCB
TKL PCB, fits many after market cases and plates.
LFK SMK TKL
Tenkeyless PCB. Specifically designed to support SMK Alps and SKCM style Alps. Pin holes are 2.08mm, large enough for 12P holtites.
The current revision supports the SMK fixing pins.
Note: SMK switches fit MX plates, but they will not securely fit 'universal' plates that also accept SKCM Alps. For TKLs that means that the phantom plate will be too lose.
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. RGB controller is installed along with two RGB indicators on the front side of board.
The PCB has a JST-PH connector which is comptable with most cases. If you would like an additional USB board, select a daugter card. Please contact support if you have any questions.
An optional onboard USB mini connector is availabe, but not recommended unless you have a custom case. Please contact support after ordering.
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 most cases.
A small piezo element is installed allowing simple 8-bit sounds. Full use requires customization via QMK.
