[GB] Atom47 replacement PCB for Vortex Core by Atomkb
« on: Mon, 08 January 2018, 17:26:18 »
I present to you....
The Atom47!



What is this?
This is a PCB designed especially for the Vortex Core 40% keyboard to be able to use QMK. Because let's face it, its programmability kind of sucks.
QMK however, does not suck. (Thanks to the community ;))

The PCB supports multiple layouts for those who are a bit more adventurous and want to have a custom plate made. It also supports RGB underglow and in-switch leds. There's a reset button under the spacebar and a caps lock indicator under the tab/caps key. Overall, a perfect replacement PCB if you ask me.

Layout options



Features
  • QMK Firmware
  • 6 Underglow RGB leds
  • In-switch leds
  • Through-hole micro usb connector (less likely to break off!)
  • South facing leds for the QMX/Zealencio users
  • Multiple layouts
  • Easily reachable reset button under the spacebar
  • cAPS LOCK INDICATOR

Pricing & Shipping
The PCB will cost you 35 dollars excluding shipping costs. Josh from SpaceCat design will be the proxy for the USA!

Demo (prototype)

Thank you :)

Approval bump :thumb:

I'd also recommend putting the price in the main post, as currently you have to click through to the form to see the price ($35).

For US orders should we place an order through the Google form or through Spacecat's website? I couldn't find a page for Atom47 on the Spacecat site

Thanx for making this, it is life saver for me! I like Core very much, but without solid programing options ... it is a little annoying to use.

Ordered one Atom47 of course.
