[IC] Atom47 round 2/rev4 - Revive your Vortex Core
« on: Tue, 24 March 2020, 14:10:52 »
So many people asked for it, so here it is.

Atom47 round 2 (rev4)





Introduction
For those who are new to this PCB, it's essentially a modern replacement PCB for the Vortex Core.
The PCB uses QMK (and VIA) so you can change every key (on the fly). It's exactly what every 40% needs.

Some of you may know me from the very first round back in 2018, since which I have learned a lot.
The new design is much more pleasing to the eyes and also features ESD protection along with a fuse.

Features

  • QMK Firmware
  • The PROPER switch orientation
  • Supports minitomic layout
  • Multiple layouts (even the minitomic layout)
  • ESD protection and fuse
  • Optional caps lock indicator (0805 size led)
  • Rotary encoder support

Layouts

Note: every layout requires a custom plate. Plate files will be made available for the Vortex Core!



Price TBD
Vendors TBD

Love the layout options. I assume there are still no plans to support the same 4-color LED as the stock PCB?

Any possibility of including a plate, universal or “base” layout?

Yes, it will probably be the stock layout with possibility to swap fn and shift.

Looking forward to this. I really like the look of that 7u bottom row, however impractical it may be. Great work as always.

Like a pcb sandwich kit or more of a milled custom case?
