Title: [TMK] HHKB Alt Controller with USB Type-C connector
Post by: hasu on Wed, 20 November 2019, 23:18:31
Controller with USB Type-C connector will be newly available for same cost within a few weeks hopefully.

Check first post in the original thread for other detailed information.

Difference is only its USB conector, USB Type-C vs USB Mini-B. Other part of controller is completely identical.

You don't have to file connector opening of its case and the Type-C connector fits into the existent opening.

Type-C connector is implemented on castellated daughter pcb to tune its height to the existent opening.

NOT USB 3. The controller works with USB 2 full speed.
NOT PD. Power delivery is not supported.

USE COMPLIANT CABLE. Don't use obscure cable. Get cable from reliable soruce.

Note that the Type-C connector is product from obscure Chinese manufacturer and not tested on the controller enough yet, while Mini-B connector is manufactured by reliable Hirose and have tested well by many users of the controller for years. I'd recommend controller with Mini-B unless you are obsessed awfully with Type-C.
