DSA 2x2 Block Key
« on: Fri, 22 January 2021, 14:48:59 »
SP has a DSA 2x2 block key:

It is obviously intended for industry use, but I am curious if anyone has used it on an enthusiast keyboard or macropad?

Any ideas on the best way to implement it? Thinking of throwing on my upcoming CU7...

I just got some. The best use I could think of is putting it up above the numpad on a classic g80-1800 layout keyboard as a delete key, since I don't use half of those nav keys anyway.

Not sure what you mean by implement - it fits on four switches so self stabilises, you might want lighter springs in them depending on use.  In firmware you just leave 3 of the keys unassigned so it doesn't appear to chatter.

I know I have some dual post 2u-2.25u caps that I got of an old Gas station POS terminal, part of me wants to find a way to use them in a build but then I would have to link two switches to activate that one key.  Guessing that 2x2 is the same thing as well, more than likely it is originally meant for a POS terminal or something like it.
