Update:


For those who would like to get a different plate, the prototypist carbon fiber buy is open and the ANSI plates are one of the offered options.

Or if you would prefer a different layout, the plate files are now up and you can modify them to the layout you would like.

Plate files: https://github.com/blindassassin111/SP-111_Plate_Files

Still waiting on final numbers from proxies before I make the post with the update.

Any extras by chance? If not, maybe a round 2 at some point in the future?

I am so sorry, I guess I missed your comment. Final count was ~200 sold.

Extras will be available after GB orders ship, Might be down for an R2 but not sure atm.

Just had a VE.A clone with connectivity issues: maybe I moved the thing around too much, I dunno, but it's got me overthinking. If my SP-111 interconnect gets disconnected, does that bother the connected half? Any benefit to using the sort of disconnect similar to apple's magsafe so I don't inadvertently put tension on the USB-C?

BA111, you're using this board, what do you think?

I am waiting on the second pcb revision to come in to check on this. I changed quite a bit around from the v1 so don't want to comment in case it is different for some reason. They should be here soon.


Update:


GB goes live tomorrow, hope everyone is excited!

Sorry for reviving this old post, but I'm getting really excited for this board. I, too, am concerned about what happens if the slave is disconnected from the master while the master is powered on. Any insight?

Nothing bad will happen at all, it just removes that half of the board. The master works fine with or without the slave.

Great! Thanks for the response :) I was concerned about electrostatic discharge.

Both halves have ESD protection so there shouldn't be any issue with that.

Great to know! I really appreciate it!
1 further question - with the sandwich mount, is there any way to isolate the plate vibration? I was thinking like silicone o-rings, but not sure how or what diameter to use.

Thanks :)

Only issue would be the USB ports have to lineup with the cutouts and there isn't a ton of room for misalignment. So if you used o-rings you would have to crank it down to compress them and then the plate would probably slap the case. I didn't design it for o-rings to be added on so I wouldn't recommend it but if you want to play with it do so at your own risk.

Hmm good call-out. I think I may need to cut some foam to put between the plate and PCB, hopefully that will minimize some of the referred vibration.
Thanks!!

I believe it is still on track, I don't have pics I can share of the PCB atm but I think it should be from what I know of where everything is atm.

You don't need to clip any switch to work on my PCBs, they always have 5 pin support, but this does not have in switch LEDs.

On discord this morning, the estimate was:
1. After M0lly
2. 3 weeks to ship to TKC, another month to QC and get em out, so maybe like October

Add in my corollary, which is ďall revised estimates are also optimistic themselvesĒ and I think weíre deep into Q4. Honestly Iím just glad it sounds like this year.

I just want to say, i've been looking for a keyboard like that all my life. I registered on this forum just for it, long time lurker of this place and also /r/mechanicalkeyboard. I need extras or a 2nd run!
