Thanks all for the ideas.  I am US based but will check the other options. When reading it looks like you can replace a cap with one of higher voltage but this being my first board I do not want to cause myself any problems by straying too far from the formula.  If I have to troubleshoot an issue I don’t want to be second guessing my components.

Managed to find UK waiting for stock of those:
CC0805KKX7R6BB105-SMD Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor, 0805 [2012 Metric], 1 ΅F, 10 V, ± 10%, X7R, CC Series-http://uk.farnell.com/yageo-phycomp/cc0805kkx7r6bb105/cap-mlcc-x7r-1uf-10v-0805/dp/3352067RL#

Also found this in Stock:
AP8803WTG-7 -  Led Driver, 1 Output, Buck (Step Down), 8V-30V in, 500kHz switch,1A out, TSOT-23-5- http://uk.farnell.com/diodes-inc/ap8803wtg-7/ic-led-driver-buck-1a-5tsot23/dp/1825359

For the rest, Later will go to my shop and ask if they have something more.
Would love to pay you for one of the PCBs



Don’t think I’m anywhere close on selling yet but if I can get them up and running I will let you know.

Sweet project! I'm very interested. Why are there not more split 65% projects?

I am very interested in this board, it is getting close to my endgame board.

Can we get the PCB off of OSH Park?

Or are there schematics of the PCB we can acquire and send to a manufacturer ourselves?

Thanks!!

It’s open source, the Github link is in the first post.  You can get the files needed to have one made as well as additional info there.

Finally got all the parts in and soldered everything up but going to have to troubleshoot.  Anyone have any quick steps I could take?  A Few of the RGB leds light up green for a split second when plugged in but no devices found.  The Crystal is a ***** to hand solder (also my first time doing components) but I did not have much trouble with other stuff after I had some practice  (the first board I did was a practice and I definitely lifted a pad on the atmega trying to wick a bridge away, the second went a lot better :P)  I am close enough to taste it but still not quite there.  If I knew the minimum amount of things to solder on that would get it to boot I could do another one and see what happens.  Will try to look through the documents for how everything is wired but not sure I will be able to track it down without some assistance. Thanks!

Have a look at the schematics, bare minimum section are,
- Microcontroller
- Crystal
- USB Circuit

MCU can be reset by shorting MCURST and +5V

Perfect! Thanks for the assistance MOZ.  I’ll prob just solder up another one bare bones to test.  Ip4234cz6 and crystal have no specific orientation correct?

Ip4234cz6 does, crystal doesn't.

****!  :thumb: I seen the dot on the board but the one on the chip is microscopic, thanks again.  Hope to get one going this weekend.

Thanks for all the help!  Got a board up and running, just been playing with firmware the last couple nights and learning QMK.
Attaching a bunch of crap for anyone else.

KLE of the setup [json attached]
201298-0

Keymap [hex attached]
201301-1

Switch Hitter layout also attached for testing switches. left ctrl doesnt light up ?? but you can see it on the log, space is just a long 4u piece as it only lit up one half when I had the split setup.  FN doesnt register alone so do fn + esc to light up shift.

Also, I have a modified right plate STL that works with my layout.  Not sure if it's cool to just attach, I should probably figure out how to use git...

Can anyone with a board confirm the RGB lighting does not flow between both halves smoothly?  Assume it is a physical wiring thing from my knowledge of led strips but I’m not sure if some matrix is defined someplace that I can change.  For reference
Current
->|  ——->|
<-|  <——-|

Desired
|—————>|
|<—————|

Does that issue related to this fix?

Here is the temporary fix for RGB in case any one was interested:

The boards I have  are a newer revision that do not need that fix.
