[Orders Closed] Phantom PCB R2
« on: Wed, 19 December 2012, 13:06:49 »
Orders close January 2nd 2013

UPDATE #1:
Quote
Okay, here's what were going to do about the teensy.

For people who have already submitted their order, I'm going to add the same number of controllers as the number of PCBs you put down. The controllers will be $18 for now, and I'll bump it down to $16 if we hit 100.
The low weight of these shouldn't add to shipping costs.
These will be the Teensy 2.0 controller with pin headers pre-soldered to them.

If you have a problem with this, or what a different amount of Teensys than number of PCBs you ordered PM me with changes and I'll make them.

First off, a thank you to jdcarpe to helping me getting this GB rolling, and, of course, to bpiphany for letting us use his Phantom design to run this round 2 GB. I think this is a really cool project for people to build their own custom boards at a reasonable price. 


Intro

The Phantom PCB is a custom tenkeyless board designed by bpiphany (formally PrinsValium) to be used with the teensy 2 programmable usb controller and a mounting plate.
Main features:
•   1.5x and 1.25x modifiers
•   Center stemmed and off-center caps lock
•    7x Cherry spacebars
•   ISO and ANSI layouts
•   5 extra keys above the arrow key cluster
•   Costar and Cherry stabilizers
•   6KRO over USB
•   In-switch LED at caps/scroll lock and Filco style LEDs
•   Switch top removal without desoldering
•   LED brightness control
•   Firmware source code can be used to remap keys

We will be keeping the PCB black with white LEDs like the original GB

What's included
1 – Phantom PCB
100 – Diodes
2 – LEDs
2 – Resistors for LEDs
2- LED stand-offs for filco-style LEDs

What you'll need
Cherry MX switches
A Teensy 2.0 controller with header pins----Available through his GB for $18 per
Stabilizers (Costar or Cherry)
Mounting plate
----Tools----
Soldering iron
Solder
Wire cutter (or if you’re cheap like me nail clippers)
Desoldering tool/braid (unless you never plan to desolder anything and won’t make any mistakes)
A DMM(or an old school multimeter) is useful to test for continuity, even super cheap ones will work fine

Pricing
Everything in the “What’s included” section above will cost $35 per board.

Shipping
I’ve calculated shipping based on estimated weights of various parts. Shipping boxes are 6 ounces, boards 5 ounces, diodes/leds/resistors are negligible, and 1 ounce extra for packing paper. Price below are calculated from costs from USPS (added $2 to each price to account for cost of packaging materials like boxes, paper, tape, etc).

Domestic (US only)
1 board - $8
2-4 boards - $10
5-8 boards - $12

International
1 board - $12
2 boards - $15

Unfortunately, international shipping is quite a bit more especially once several boards are involved since price hikes happen at 4 ounce intervals as opposed to domestic which increases prices at every pound. For larger orders, PM me and we will figure out the best/cheapest way to ship.
If it is the case that we have a large amount of international orders, it might be beneficiary to find an EU distributer, but for now just take the prices I have posted as the maximum you’d have to pay.

Order form here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGlZZXBvczFVS0EyMmdoLVJJcUFiZ1E6MQ
If you would like to make changes to your order please PM me

you are missing 2 LED stand-offs, if you want LEDs at the normal Filco LED locations and not on the switches.

Depends if you already have some of the parts.

Teenkey - $16-$20
Switches - $30-$45
Plate - $18-$25
Stabz - $10
Case - $100 - $?????
Someone to solder if you don't wanna do it - $50ish

Not sure yet, but in a couple weeks probably.

btw, will the PCB look the exact same way as the old one?

Since we are not doing any modifications to the board, it will basically be a copy of the old one, so it's not a second revision, just a rerun.


Also, 2 stand-offs will now be included to allow for filco-style LED mounting as opposed to in-switch

Typed myself in for one, it will be a neat summer project and a good way to refine my soldering. Are there any whispers of other compatible case GBs in the nearish future? Notice I missed the MKC aluminum one but the pricing is too high for me regardless.

maybe you can get some discount from them if the mount is large(50+ pieces)? and we all can save some shipping....

Okay guys what do you think about including the teensy controller into the GB?

I talked to Paul over at PJRC electronics and we can save $1.60 on the controllers if we buy at least 25, and $3.20 if we reach 100 orders. (Right now board orders are at 50 exactly)
This will also save people on shipping since individual controllers cost $3.70 to ship inside the US and a little under $7 for international. I'm not sure if there's any other options for the Phantom, so unless someone has an objection, I feel like this would be better to add since it will save everyone at least $5 off their final project.

Let me know what you guys think.

Ordered one to match the plate I got from dan.  Now to decide switches and hope one of the custom cases in the works comes through.

I would like as much included in the GB as possible, so if you could get the teensy included as well, that would work.
