[IC] Noxary Valhalla - Gasket Mounted Ergo 65%
« on: Sun, 13 September 2020, 19:18:51 »


Valhalla

An ergo 65%, developed from the ground up. Featuring Noxary DUAL Mount, no visible screws, and a seamless case design, Valhalla is the first in Series 3 - the next generation of Noxary boards.



Mounting

The Noxary DUAL Mount uses two large diameter o-rings - one above the plate in the top piece, and the other around the switches resting on the base. This ensures no vibrations from the plate can be transferred to the case, creating a unique sound & feel.



Layout

Compared to existing ergo options, the distance between the two halves is increased ~150%, whilst the alpha tilt is decreased from 12 degrees to 8. Along with the Noxary LEDGE, which lowers the front height, the typing comfort is improved greatly.

The bottom row features 1.5 - 1 - 1.5 caps on each side, with a 2.75u spacebar on the left, and 2.25u on the right. The 2.75u can be split into 1.75 - 1u, and the 2.25u into 1 - 1.25u. The traditional options of full or split Backspace, and regular or stepped Caps Lock remain.



Design

The design is unmistakably Noxary - a low front & clean side profile. The DUAL Mount is designed not only to produce a unique typing experience, but also to hide any screws on the outside. The front corners made by tilting the alphas have been curved too. These four elements combined creates the signature aesthetic.



Connection

The PCB is designed by Gondolindrim, and has been kept pure. Switches must be soldered as this provides the best overall typing experience, and there are no in-switch LEDs. The physical layout options have been kept to a minimum, and can be fully programmed through VIA firmware. A USB-C daughterboard is centrally located between the two alpha halves.

I generally think "ergo" alice boards with arrow keys often looks off balanced - but this one seems well done with the implementation of the close nav cluster on the right. Quite beautiful, as always, Xondat!

I agree, none of them satisfied me so I did it myself. No regrets spending months on the layout :p

Does the PCB (and plate) support split L-Shift (2.25 to 1.25 + 1)? If it doesn't then please consider adding it <3

Absolutely!

Personally I'll be keeping the spacebars full width, but I know there is a good portion of people that want the extra key or two there :)
