Looking for someone to design a Cherry G80-11900 PCB
« on: Tue, 17 July 2018, 10:59:07 »
Hello, I attempted to swap the switches in a Cherry G80-11900 keyboard, from MX Black to a Blue clone, as the person who wanted it liked the feel of the blues better, but the project has been ruined by Cherry's "spit-and-cardboard" PCB, pads kept lifting, and by the end, many of the keys did not work. After that, I spent hours adding jumper wires and probing with my multimeter to try to get it to work. No luck, the only key that decided to work again was the wrong letter. Then it fell off my desk and a corner cracked off.

So, I am giving up on this PCB, and I was wondering, has anyone ever designed a replacement PCB for the G80-11900?

If not, I will gladly pay someone to do so, I don't care if the original PS/2 ports are used or not, as long as the trackpad works also.

Also, of course, I will make the design open-source so others can use it for their G80-11900's.
