I made a [Digikey Cart] if anyone is interested (for the beamspring PCB). I'd also appreciate it if anyone could point out any errors.

I have ordered all parts in the cart and also ordered the blank PCB (ordered everything to be able assembling two).
Once I have it, I will give it a shot and if all goes well, I will give a quick update and guide.

Sick. I'll do the same tonight (order all the parts).

Just FYI I screwed up the edge connector, I think it needs to be 3.96mm pitch. Something like this: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/EDAC/307-030-520-202?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtWxQ3D3EXBN5JWos%2FM28oxGcPkrE5HM6E%3D

You need the one with 2 x 30 pins (60p) - the rest is correct (pitch)

Hello everyone,

I recently got into beamspring keyboard and got lucky enough to source two of these beauties with a blue set of selectric keycaps. :cool:

Since no one is making these controllers anymore, I'm now following the rabbit into its hole with hope to be able to make my own controllers. :eek:

First of all, thank you very much for the digitcard, it helped a LOT, now I need a bit of help to build the Solenoid controller, can anyone point me to the right direction ?

Also, is the 30x2 connector the right one in the current version of the digitcard ?

Thank you for all the knowledge shared here and for your help :)

I'm working on porting QMK to xwhatsit boards. Is there anyone around here who would like to help me by testing my code on a Beamspring rev.3 or rev.4 xwhatsit board ? Please PM me.
