Testing Rev.B controller, USB connector aligns properly without any filing job now.
And smaller SMT TACT switch is used in this and future revision, instead of through hole one.

In next revision the TACT switch will be move to middle of opening for ease of pressing button.



Early Access
There are some excess controllers from Rev.B and I like to part with them to mitigate development expense. Is any GB participant willing to get the controller? I would appreciate this.

It costs 32USD including shipping, you can save 8 and get controller eariler.

If you are interested email me with subject "FC660C Early Access" and let me know your invoice number. I'll refund 8USD out of 40 you paid. The controllers will be shipped in a week.

Thanks.

What differences will there be (if any) between the prototype Rev B controller and the GB version?

As said in the post reset button placement is changed in Rev.C.

I'm thinking about that and don't decide yet. at worst case you can use other layers than layer 1.

any suggestions are welcome.

It'd be great if there was a toggle in the web thing, but I understand that's extra effort for not much change. Personally, I'd say throw up a default map here with it on and then disable it on the web config. Considering you can output in C I can probably just build one, it's just a timesaver not to have to since I don't have a linux box around.

Changed keymap editor, it has two variants now. Plain one is firmware without any Insert LED control while other controls Insert LED to indicate Fn+Q state.

- http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?fc660c_emu (Stock keymap emulation)
Awesome, thanks.

Hasu, I'm completely new to your custom controllers; is it possible to change the capacitance threshold / actuation point?

to the people who is doing the buy, what sort of changes will you make to your keyboard with the programming? just curious to what changes people do

First of all, replacing Ins and Del by PgUp PgDn, then maybe I'll add some more Fn stuff.

But that's not all about programming:
- I support open-source everywhere, including in my keyboard
- I expect a more solid USB port
- Hasu is amazing for doing that  :thumb:

Ahh..yes that would be nice actually. Wonder why leopold decided to give insert/delete their own key. I actually hardly ever use insert/delete so I guess it never really made sense to me. Have you seen what other keys people assigned it to? I could see the hasu being useful for hhkb since they're no windows key on it?

Yes, it is possible. But it won't be supported in default firmware for user safety's sake :D
See this post and first post in the thread.

sent mail as well: my usb connector was getting wonky anyway so this is a great way to get that fixed :P

Could you share pic of it if you have time?
I'm curious about how the connector come off.

Not sure if you can gauge anything from it, but here you go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zrd3tblcdytbw81/20170418_085657.jpg?dl=0. From the looks of it, it looks like the connector is just worn out (It looks like maybe there is some slight warping, but I'm not sure since I've never inspected a connector this closely).

And here it is with a cable attached: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nlk3g3nhopschny/20170418_085637.jpg?dl=0. Not really a visible difference, but it's very wobbly and can be disconnected easily: when first inserting, it doesn't have that "click" when it's fully connected - it just sits there.

I bought it second hand with landing pads, and maybe it was just well-used. Not sure how old the board is.

I guess solderig or PCB is problem, not connector itself. if so you can't see what happens until you open case.

Thanks for the tip: when I receive the new controller I can try to take a few pics of the old one to see if that's the issue.  Either way, shouldn't be a problem when I get yours!

wil you be flashing the default layout on the controller before you ship ?
To be honest i don't know if can figure out how to load a new Keymap  :confused:
i know RTFM i'm reading the wiki's but the more i read the more questions arise..  :-[

But this controller seems like an awesome way to get my hands on a backup in case my usb port fails.
i'm trying to figure out how to load a layout using Fedora, and perhaps OSX 10.9.5 but i have an older 32bit laptop running Fedora.

Still reading btw; like the issues with mac media keys. personally would be happy with volume up/down.
btw; using Fn letter o raises brightness of my laptop and p dims the screen of my laptop. (both FC660C and FC660M)
i found this strange ScrLk and Pus/Brk for screen brightness. to bad there isn't a strange key combo for volume.
btw if i remember correctly also on Fedora..Just a side note..

You'll be able to flash the .hex on Fedora by using dfu-programmer. After you install the package, likely from sudo or root, press the restart button on the Hasu controller then:

Code: [Select]
dfu-programmer atmega32u2 erase --force
dfu-programmer atmega32u2 flash mynewhexfile.hex
dfu-programmer atmega32u2 reset

Yes, the controller will be shipped with default firmware(Emu) so that you can test it out of the box without flashing.

GB Ending on April 30

Hi folks,
Thank you all for your support! I already got many many orders, almost 100, it is three times as much as what I expected.
This GB will be closed on end of month. Please place order and make payment till 30th of April(in your time zone) if you are interested.

And possibly final revision PCBs are on the way and production will start soon. I'll post updates here.

I hope I can take the credit or blame for some of those orders, as my video about your controller has been pretty popular.

Well, sold my FC660c after a while because I was used to TMK.
Now I'm using a Realforce RGB, so I have to use the usb_usb... And I'm sad!
