Velocifire TKL02 PCB help
« on: Thu, 17 June 2021, 10:09:14 »
Hello all.  I have this TLK02 PCB.  I'm not that familiar with notations on PCB's.  Do y'all mind skimming my pictures and let me know what type of additions can be had with this board.  I'd like to run it wireless with a battery if possible, and add some under-glow.  Maybe some way to add OLED display... Just any insight as to what this board can do would be appreciated.  I plan to order 1upkeyboards HASU board to see if I can access its firmware that way.  I just want to know what the hardware is capable of.  Thanks for the consideration.

There's a big hole for a bluetooth module, if you can find a pic of a Velocifire board with it populated you can find a module that matches and solder it on.  It might just work or you might have to update the firmware to that of the bluetooth version.

I'm not seeing any pads for underglow RGB LEDs so there's no reason they would be included in the firmware and you can't add it.  You could solder the 'in switch' LEDs of the edge switches underneath the board to add single colour underglow, looks like the resistors are already soldered for them.

The only Hasu board that might be of use would be the USB to USB which is used to remap keys on any board - it's very nice but won't help with either of the above.

There appears to be a spot for a battery connector between F4 & F5. Might be related to Bluetooth.

This is a big help in moving forward.  I knew there was a wireless version of this keyboard which uses a 2.4ghz dongle.  Thanks a bunch!
