[IC] TGR 910 PCBs and Plates
« on: Tue, 06 August 2019, 02:43:17 »
Replacement PCBs and Plates for the TGR 910

Interest Check form here:  https://forms.gle/6Z3CcviLrx89w52h7

I’m planning to run a small GB for TGR 910 PCBs and plates in a few weeks time. They should be compatible with all models of the 910 (OG, SE, CE, RE, etc…).

PCB designed by kacklappen23. QMK Firmware with support for the layouts in the diagram below. It supports all layouts found on the original 910 plate and PCB save for ISO and split shift. PCB also features horizontal and vertical relief cuts taken from the PCB design of OTD keyboards.

Plate is designed by me with the outline taken from the original 910 plate. Will edit for compatibility based on IC response before the GB.

PCBs will have an MOQ of 20 with a price break at 50. Production time will be around 1-2 months.

This could not have come at a better time. I just purchased a 910 in the aftermarket. Hoping to have some options in the future if the PCB craps out.

What are the chances for a brass plate? Also, as a PCB noob - are there certain benefits to having a 1.6 vs 1.2mm PCB thickness?

Would be in for a couple of each. Would also like to suggest both 6.25u and 7u support. And good ol' aluminum plates. A single fixed color is fine. Like red, or grey, or black.

Actually, would you ever consider doing another run of the 910?
Just got into this hobby and would love to pick up a 910 PC version.

Just received my glorious TGR 910 in the mail... and it has a bum PCB. This now HAS to happen. If we're on the button for MOQ, just PM me.

Also another +1 for aluminum or brass options for plate.

Just put this up yesterday (I think) and interest looks good enough to start on the PCB side of things.

Though the PCB is a variant of one that has been produced and tested, I'll be ordering a sample before doing a production run to make sure that it works.

Also seems like there's some interest in Alu/Brass plates. I'm trying to keep the number of options down to get to a somewhat decent qty so that pricing is reasonable.

As a point of reference, PC plates will be $30-40 each at 10qty. Alu will most likely be a little more.

Edit: Right now, looking at the responses, I'm thinking of doing alu and poly plates with support for both 6.25 and 7u space with combo BS. PCB with in 1.2mm with a matte black soldermask.

Haven't even thought about a blocker LED, since the plan was to keep the PCB as clean as possible.

Would you guys be more interested in a RGB LED or in a solid color one?

I like to change my LED with the keysets I use so RGB preferred.
Other than that underglow might also be worth considering for people who have the difuser/acrylic case.

RGB LEDs under the PCB for sure. I thought the original PCBs had those too, no?

I'm fine with no LED in the blocker. I don't think people use that one anyway, or if they do not as many as the under LEDs.

From what I understand, the original Exent and 910 PCBs are interchangeable. (My 910 currently has a black Exent PCB.)

Not sure whether these will be.

These are made to the exact same dimensions to the original quadcube PS2AVR PCB that was shipped with the 910. Should work, but I would double check with someone who has gone the other way and thrown a 910 PCB into an extent.

Aiming at 35ish USD at 50qty. A little more at 30qty.

Going to get a quote with matte black silkscreen and some nice Hirose USB connectors and will report back with an estimated cost once I've crunched some numbers.

I'd rather an RGB LED for the blocker and could care less if there are any LEDs for the bottom for side glow. One downside to the normal 910 & exent PCBs is I can't turn off the underglow/side glow LEDs while having the blocker LED lit up.

Edit: Learning and catching up to the whole custom keyboard thing. BMC is just super buggy on mac computers, so I can't get my current 910 board to properly map.

Looking forward to being able to use QMK firmware on these new PCB boards. That stuff is lightyears ahead.

So was talking to ai03 yesterday and he mentioned USB height for 1.2mm PCBs. Since the USB cutout on the 910 is designed for 1.6mm PCB, using a 1.2mm PCB will not work as the USB connector will sit .4mm higher than needed.

In short, these will be done in 1.6mm.

From another standpoint, a DYI burger mount could lower the connector to the correct level.

So was talking to ai03 yesterday and he mentioned USB height for 1.2mm PCBs. Since the USB cutout on the 910 is designed for 1.6mm PCB, using a 1.2mm PCB will not work as the USB connector will sit .4mm higher than needed.

In short, these will be done in 1.6mm.

but how will i get my meme flex

From another standpoint, a DYI burger mount could lower the connector to the correct level.

You shut your mouth, Evil Morty.

+ 1 for brass plate. All my 910s have brass plate. Good ole brass as plate material is always the OG classic.

In for a few pcbs as well. Thanks. Was more than excited when he sent me the link to your IC. Will watch this very closely.

So I pulled the 910 out yesterday and took a look at the USB port and it does look like there should be enough room for a 1.2mm PCB to fit. The main issue is the cable as the USB tunnel for the 910 is on the smaller side. The cable pictured is just a simple sleeved cable but anything larger would probably have fitment issues with 1.2

Last picture are calipers opened to 0.45mm. It's on the same focus plane as the USB port to give you guys an idea of how much room you'd be working with.

Good call. I took a look at the pcb and I think right now the Unikorn 1.2 pcb just sits right on top of the brass weight/bottom case with very little gap in between. Anything thicker than 1.2mm 1.6 mm you will probably run into risk of hitting against the bottom case.

EDIT: Sorry I didn't realize it was actually 1.6mm. Thanks Lightning for pointing out.

IIRC the TGR-910 PCB is called TGR-Unicorn v1.2 (with a C) and is 1.6mm, the standard thickness, so otanishock probably meant anything thicker than 1.6mm would have issues.

Is there a timeline for this? Just wondering when a GB would open.

Targeting late next week. Need to do some CAD work on the plate. Looks like most people want a universal plate.

Will also be doing either a brass option on top of Polycarb and maybe FR4.

GB should be open for two weeks or so and production will take about two months at most. Cutting anodizing out of the process saves a ton of time.

Actually is this compatible with the EXENT?

I understand the originals were identical between the two boards, but this seems to be missing the key on the top right and has a gap on the bottom row on the right. (Based on the renders on page 1).

Is it possible to support both boards? The EXENT community is badly in need of replacement PCBs.

According to this https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87213.msg2799758#msg2799758 post by quadcube, the original 910 and EXENT PCBs are the same “electrical and mechanical” design, but the same does not appear to be true of this replacement design.

At the moment, this has no compat for the key under the 910 blocker. Extent has a key there.

If you guys can confirm that the 910 PCB is the same (save for the corner blocker) I can ask the designer to add compat for it which is just another switch under where the 910 blocker is.

If you want to make it Exent-compatible, my instinct is that you have to rework the bottom row too. Right now you have blank space for the half u blocker to the left of the arrow cluster which Exent does not have.

This is probably right - from how I see it on the pic in the OP, the current state of the PCB accounts for a right-side 0.5u blocker, but not for an unblocked bottom row. So that'd have to change in addition to the top right corner key.

Dimension-wise, however, it does look like the EXENT PCB fits the 910, so the reverse might be applicable as well.

If you want to make it Exent-compatible, my instinct is that you have to rework the bottom row too. Right now you have blank space for the half u blocker to the left of the arrow cluster which Exent does not have.

As an EXENT owner following this thread, that is definitely an issue that goes through my mind. For me personally that 0.5 U blocker is actually a bigger issue than the top right key. I think it would be easy to find something that visually replaces that corner, but finding/rigging something to visually replace the 0.5 U blocker a the bottom will take some work.

To me though all of that is just visual issues that I'm willing to work around. As long as the PCB fits in the case and plays nicely with most of the switch plate I'll be happy. And from what I can tell the TGR 910 PCB should meet those two criteria. I'll willing to buy one and see, at least.

I know this could be seen as a bit of a rude thread derail (apologies reconsiderit), but for the EXENT crowd, I feel I should mention that there is now a GB up for a re-run of EXENT PCBs by quadcube.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102878.0

Should mean there is less of a need for sourcing odd spacers for us EXENT people, and less of a demand for adding complexity to a 910 specific board as is being discussed here.

(Again, sorry if this is out of line)

If its going to be reworked, I'll ask the designer to add the non-blocked bottom row compatibility. There's not a horrible much amount of complexity in there as there aren't any conflicting key positions between the two boards. If I've correctly looked things over, the PCB should be able to accommodate both the 910 bottom rows and all the extent bottom row options

Shipping out the last Southpaw 65 boards this week and am working on getting southpaw full size redone and sorted out.

Should be running it in January along with Jubi. Delivery most likely after CNY.

Same same. It's about time my 910s got some fresh guts.

From the responses I've gathered from both the forms, I'll most likely be doing a poly full plate and a coated full brass plate.

PCBs are finally headed to me. Should be able to test them and get the GB set up by the end of next week.



Edit: I'll also have 4 extras from the proto run available immediately (if they work) if anyone is in dire need of one of these.

If it's not too late I'd love to grab one of those proto boards. My current 910 has been out of commission for a few months due to a dead board. Let me know if there's one available! I'm still in for the group buy either way.
