[GB] TMK FC660C Alt Controller
« on: Wed, 05 April 2017, 17:06:18 »
What is this?
This controler replaces original controller of Leopold FC660C and makes the keyboard programmable.



Check this thread for technical infos of the controller: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=88439.0



ORDER

TMK Keyboard Service

Now you can order FC660C Alt Controller in my artisan service thread regularly.

See this thread: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90317.0



This post won't be updated anymore basically. Please refer to TMK Keyboard Service thread above instead.
More

How to install
You need only screw driver to install this controller. No soldering is required.

And take a look this video. Thank you, stoic-lemon!
https://youtu.be/TYmAb8zOPWU?t=3m6s


Open case
You have to void warranty from manufacturer to do this mod, of course.
More
Step 1: Void your warranty with getting rid of sticker and unscrew.


Step 2:  Crack it open using tool like phone openner or plastic card with care.


Step3: Done!



Mate/unmate connector
Check image below to know how to mate/unmate connector.
More
I recommend you follow method proposed by manufacturer and this works certainly for me.
You don't need any tool to remove/unmate the connector use just your fingers. Plier and screwdriver likely slip off and make scratch and give cables damage.
To remove/unmate hold many cables as possible with thumb and index finger and wiggle the connector laterally each side within 15deg range.
To insert/mate just push both side edge of the connector parallel with fingers or nails.



Install controller board
Just screw down controller PCB on case.




How to remap
Keymap Editor
You can use online keymap editor to get prebuilt firmware with your own keymap.



More
There are two kind of prebuilt firmware. Plain one has very simple keymap and  would be useful as start point if you want to define you own keymap from scratch. Emu one emulates FC660C stock behaviour, it would be nice if you like the stock keymap basically and need only small change.

- Plain: http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?fc660c
- Emu: http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?fc660c_emu

LED control
CapsLock LED indicates CapsLock state naturally in both Plain and Emu firmware.
Insert LED never light up with Plain firmware, which suits for people who have no plan on the LED or regard it distractive. Emu firmware turns Insert LED on when Layer 1 is activated, you can you can place your keymap there and make it indicator for your keymap state.
Not a fan of these behaviour? You can do anything with the LEDs if you willing to write small code, of course.

Keymap Examples:
- hasu's: spacefn and mousekey(Emu) https://goo.gl/HfpRFd
Share your keymap! Use 'URL shortener' button on keymap editor to get URL of your keymap and post it here.


You can grasp how this works by watching stoic-lemon's video.
https://youtu.be/TYmAb8zOPWU?t=10m59s



How to flash
TMK FC660C Alt Controller has ATMega32U4 as a microcontroller. To boot the microcontroller into programming mode push button on bottom of keyboard.

See wiki page on github for detail of flashing tool.
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/wiki#flash-firmware



Build from source codes
You can also tweak sources if keymap editor is not enough.
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/tree/master/keyboard/fc660c

See this for detail.
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/wiki#build-firmware



NOTE
- No plan for USB-C C is a bit too large to plug in USB-mini hole.
More

- No Bluetooth This controller doesn't support Bluetooth, USB only. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=88720.msg2397757#msg2397757
- Not for FC980C I guess desinging controller for FC980C is not so difficult but problem is its costs and availability here. I cannot justify the cost to get it so far, I may need to run interest check on geekhack to know how many demand exists.
- Actuation point adjustment Not officially supported. See this post.

Status Update
Hi folks, thanks for your support!
All GB orders were shipped yesterday and you will receive noticing email with tracking number from Japan Post in next few days. The email comes from ems-mypage@ml.post.japanpost.jp and tends to be recognzied as a spam, please look into your junk mail folder too. Email me your paypal email or invoice number if you don't have tracking number until May 24.

In some countries including Canada and Australia you cannot trace your packet unfortunately. I have never had any lost packet though, in Canada I have had long delay on some deliveries these months, in worst case it took two months, really pain :( If you are in Canada you may have to be very patient.


136 Controllers were shipped to these countires.

First, this controller doesn't support Bluetooth.

And I'm not sure whether I can make Bluetooth controller for FC660C before very long.

I have no clear plan on Bluetooth controller, I'm not working on it currently at least.

I found some dificulties on Bluetooth controller. One of them is that FC660C controller PCB is much smaller than HHKB and this requires new design and components. It will take longer than what I expected and I'm not sure when I can have enough time to do so.

You can make (already) *any* USB keyboard programmable using Hasu's USB->USB converter.
You won't be able to change the FN key (if there is one on a FC 660M), but for the rest, you'd have TMK firmware on the converter so it would be completely programmable.

Isn't that case restricted to a FC660M and not C due to the different location of where the cable connects to?

Yeah, it's confirmed in that other thread that it's not for the FC660c. It's for a new pcb.

And I ordered new iteration of pcbs and will get them within several days. Revised screw holes and retouch others slightly.

Great work Hasu. I can only speak for myself, but I bought the FC660c only after I paid the invoice for your new controller.  ;D I hope you'll open source and post the pcb design for the controller up on Github.

@hasu
First of; Thank you for doing this Hasu really really happy to finally get the chance to have
a fully programable keyboard.. :thumb: :thumb:
i stumbled upon this news watching “Manofinterests” Youtube channel episode “This Week in Keyboard 04112017”.

i also own a FC660M (mx-clear) but i already read that this is only compatible with my FC660C. Who knows perhaps in the future.
For now i’m very happy about the prospect of a pimping my FC660C. Can’t thank you enough mate.

i wil definitely email you ASAP (As Soon As Possible)..

i do have a couple questions in regards to the keymap Editor.

is there a howto for the editor?
i’m using mac and sum CentOS vm’s. i do have an older laptop i can install a different linux version on it to aid.

i’m looking for a step by step guide. like how to flash the firmware with the new layout i made.
i already noticed that the editor doesn’t work on safari but does on Firefox so no issue there.
Don’t have googly chrome.

i did find your main page that points to a wiki, http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/
So wil have to have a look.

Also under Action Codes fourth tab from left (Layer Switching and etc.) pointed me to github page
“Keymap framework - how to define your keycap”https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/blob/master/tmk_core/doc/keymap.md#3-layer-switching-example

That looks promising and complicated / time consuming but i’m going to read true it  :-[

Thanks again..

Or you can get a Clueboard PCB and use the FC660M case. :)

You said that you had layer 1 turn on the LED on the ins key, if we edit it in the keymap editor will it disable that or will it stay on? I'm not really planning on holding onto that but if I move the shift layer change down to layer 1 I don't want the LED to light up every time I hit shift.

I'm thinking about that and don't decide yet. at worst case you can use other layers than layer 1.

any suggestions are welcome.

sent mail as well: my usb connector was getting wonky anyway so this is a great way to get that fixed :P

Could you share pic of it if you have time?
I'm curious about how the connector come off.

Hello Hasu, I just paid the invoice for the controller. Thank you for making this possible. I do have a question. Is it possible to program macro's to keycombinations? Like for example I study medicine and often when writing about cellular physiology I need to type electrolytes and their charges which are superscript. In word, for Ca2+ I would have to press Ca,CTRL,SHIFT,+,2+,CTRL,SHIFT,+
Is there a way to program the controller so I could toggle a different layer where I press C for example and it outputs that macro? If not does somebody have a different solution? I'm that big of a tech guy.

It'd be great if there was a toggle in the web thing, but I understand that's extra effort for not much change. Personally, I'd say throw up a default map here with it on and then disable it on the web config. Considering you can output in C I can probably just build one, it's just a timesaver not to have to since I don't have a linux box around.

Testing Rev.B controller, USB connector aligns properly without any filing job now.
And smaller SMT TACT switch is used in this and future revision, instead of through hole one.


In next revision the TACT switch will be move to middle of opening for ease of pressing button.



Early Access
There are some excess controllers from Rev.B and I like to part with them to mitigate development expense. Is any GB participant willing to get the controller? I would appreciate this.

It costs 32USD including shipping, you can save 8 and get controller eariler.

If you are interested email me with subject "FC660C Early Access" and let me know your invoice number. I'll refund 8USD out of 40 you paid. The controllers will be shipped in a week.

Thanks.

You can define macro in keymap file for that purpose. Macro code looks like this.
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/blob/master/keyboard/hhkb/unimap_hasu.c#L89-L109

Unfortunately web keymap editor doesn't support macro at this time unfortunately.

Changed keymap editor, it has two variants now. Plain one is firmware without any Insert LED control while other controls Insert LED to indicate Fn+Q state.
