The problem with powering all the leds is... power;)
Powering leds is not as easy a task as it may seem. Connect them in series and you need a big step-up converter, connect in parallel and you need a resistor for each one of them.
I have an idea to run traces through the leds in form of a matrix. This should be the easiest way to power using an expansion module, because it'll require only 14 resistors (for the columns) and if someone really wants to, it's possible to control every diode separately this way. Even every diode's brightness separately if it's really necessary.
Though I don't promise anything;). Just saying it would be cool.

Wow, that would be awesome. Would it be possible to program the keyboard to react to whatever it's doing, a la press a key and it lights up?

Do we have a GH60 logo? Is the simple one on the prototype ok? Because there was a thread where people designed logos and there was all the fancy complicated stuff as well.

The current one looks like this:

I am a c# developer. Please let me know if I can be of any help, if needed, for a windows GUI.
Any help will be useful. The GUI will be most probably in C++/Qt it that's ok for you.

Now other things. Since we have the expansion connector with 4 free signals there, I've decided to use these 4 pins so that they're not wasted for those who don't need expansion. I've connected one of them to the WASD block leds, second to the escape led and the third to the Fn (to the right of right shift) led.
If someone is using the expansion connector, they just don't solder the resistors and there's no problem.
Now 1 signal is unused and I'm wondering where to connect it.
One option is backspace (you could do some visual indication in the upper right-hand corner of the keyboard with it).
The second option is the ISO backslash next to left shift (if someone wants to use it as Fn).
And the third is to connect it to the rcontrol, rgui, ralt, rshift block, to replicate the Poker arrows, so that they can glow when activated.

Please tell me what you think. I don't think there's time for another poll, so just write here.

please if at all possible consider making the programming utility compatible with linux and... i can dream... os x would be nice too. using Qt that shouldnt really be a problem should it?

Status update
Ok, it's high time to report on the status of the PCB, because there are only a couple of days until payment deadline.
I did have some delay in the design process, so I'm sorry, but I am catching up. I've spent the whole today finishing some unfinished tasks, and I'll present in short the changes since the last time:
1. I routed a whole matrix for LED backlighting. There are 14 columns and 5 rows, just like with the switches. This means every LED can be turned on or off independently, the LEDs which were already connected to the controller are obviously not connected to the matrix,
2. all rows and columns of this matrix are broken out to headers on the top side of the board along with 4 communication lines and power. Those who want backlighting will need an extra module which will sit under the main PCB and drive the LEDs. I will design this module later, when GH60 is sent out,
3. I fixed the horizontal position of the USB connector and changed the dimensions of the PCB just a little, so that it sits exactly in the center of the Poker case.
4. I changed solder pads' drill sizes - 0.8128 (32mil) for LEDs (instead of 1mm - crazy...), enlarged most of the pads where hand soldering is involved (headers and resistors),
Older changes since rev. A:
5. split backspace option (one more key to the right of backspace, and option to move backspace to the left and install a 1x key),
6. all switches rotated 0 or 180 degrees
7. 4 extra LED clusters (read previous post)

If you're interested, here are the issues I still have to address: https://github.com/komar007/ghkb/issues?milestone=1&state=open
I'm closing old and adding new ones all the time, so the number of issues is more or less constant:D

What we're doing next
In a couple of days, if everything goes all right, I will order the (hopefully) final prototype. This is necessary because of really big changes in the board since the last time.
This time there won't be an open prototype group buy, because there's no time for it. However, I will order more and send a prototype to everyone actively involved in the project, especially case-wise to make sure all the dimensions are ok. This time prototype means just the PCB, no components or anything else.

It's great to see that you are making a huge progress, Komar. Very good work! and really nice to see that you have adding a matrix for the LEDs :D

I have a quick question since I had some trouble getting an answer by just looking at the PCB. but will there be support for a 1.5-1-1.5- 6 -1.5-1-1-1.5 bottom row? I know that the left holes for the stabs is okay, but I am not entirely sure about the right side.

Sorry, no.
All possible configurations for the bottom row are:
a) 1¼-1¼-1¼-6¼-1¼-1¼-1¼-1¼
b) 1½-1-1½-7-1½-1-1½
c) 1½-1½-7-1½-1-1-1½
d) crossovers of a) and c), because the space in these two ends in the same place. So you can have:
  d1) 1¼-1¼-1¼-6¼-1½-1-1-1½
  d2) 1½-1½-7-1¼-1¼-1¼-1¼
You could also do some other crossovers, but then you'd have spaces between keys.


yea! no i can have LEDs on my number row and on my home row! :D  great work komar!


Well, I just have to remind that this module will cost extra and I think I'll sell it separately later. I can't predict now how much it will be.

1. right alt-win-control-shift "Poker style arrow" cluster
2. wasd cluster
3. escape
4. right fn (to the left or right from right shift)


These can  be used without the backlighting module

Aww, bummer!

Actually, with the right plate, a 1.5-1-1.5-6-1.5-1-1-1.5 layout is possible. There are not correct mounting holes for PCB mount stabilizers, so you will have to use plate mount stabs. I call this the "100% correct" HHKB layout. Which is different from the "true HHKB" plate in the GB. So I don't want to confuse people by calling it that. But yes, it's possible.

With center stemmed 6x spacebar only.

EDIT: I think both of these will work. The second design uses the ANSI 1.25 bottom row placements.

The 6 unit spacabar shares the same switch position as the 7 unit does. It's just a matter of adding stabilizer support for the rightmost stem.

I have found these molex USB mini receptacles: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/0675031020/WM5461TR-ND/1624424
According to the specs, they extend 2mm from the PCB edge, and I think it's possible to shrink 2 pads to make it stand out even 2.5mm.
This seems much better than our current solution, where the receptacle stands out only 1.6mm. I remember there was some talk on the connector not standing out enough and potential problems with plugging cable through the case.
If I counted things correctly there will be a 0.4mm gap between the top edge of the PCB and the plastic case, so after moving the connector up a bit beyond the specs we should have it recessed about 0.5mm from the external wall of the case.

Could someone with a Poker check how recessed the connector is?
And to the case people (owners and creators): if we change the connector, the distance from the top-left hole to the top edge of the connector would be 29.9mm (without altering the footprint in the specs). Would this be enough?


EDIT: I'm serious about needing help here. I wouldn't like to fix things after the final prototype. I've considered making a small tab of PCB (like in the Poker) to extend the connector, but it would barely fit the hole and wouldn't leave any room for adjusting the position, so I don't like this idea very much.

Was this PCB going to have the contributors names and stuff added to the pcb like the phantom or did that get shot down?

I think I like the idea of leaving it empty and clean.
Though a website with those names and a single link on the PCB wouldn't be a bad idea.

moved from the prototyping thread...
GH60 rev. B (second prototype) dimensions

Okay, the rev. B board is nearly ready and here are the dimensions which hopefully will be final.
Could you (case makers and owners) check if these dimensions will fit your cases nicely?
These were made basing on my measurements of the Poker plastic case and comparison with rev. A.
FYI the switches are centered in the board in both directions, so the distances between keycap edges and PCB edges are the same on the left as on the right and the same on the top as on the bottom.

27547-0

EDIT (extra info):
The 7mm distance is the horizontal distance from the center of the top-left mounting hole and the horizontal center of the USB connector.
The USB receptacle stands out 2mm beyond the PCB edge.
The corner radius is 2mm.

EDIT 2: updated image with reset switch position and element drawings

I am sorry I am not much help but is the reset switch position available from the hole on the bottom of the case where the poker dipswitches normally are?

Yes, it replaces the poker dipswitches.

Ladies and gentlemen, it seems the board is ready.
I'm sending it for final prototype production within a day.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

i love it, komar. thank you so much for the work you've put into this project. the board is amazing and with a little elbow grease and some project management, happily help hundreds if not thousands of people type about their days for years to come.

to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

Thanks;)
There are some new settlements. I'll produce a fully assembled prototype instead of just PCBs, to be completely sure everything is ok and fits various cases. Then I'll start the full production. This may delay things a little bit but we're dealing with too much money to have room for errors.
I hope you can understand.
