But jokes aside, where are we on this ?

i have a feeling it will get delayed, so as not to take a bite out of the initial rush for the U80. even if they're different form factors, they will be fighting for the same budget.

Last I heard, there are still some RAMA projects in the queue taking priority over the Thermal prototype. I have seen some very hype shots of the Thermal PCB so that’s moving along.

Production samples of cases should be finished soon. Like, this week maybe soon. As I have joked on Discord, the manufacturers are too busy cranking out M60-A right now to task switch. My mum always told me, good things come to those who wait.

Production samples of PCB were delivered. The colors and artwork are perfect, but something is missing. Fab did an oopsie. If you can spot it, you win a prize. No "missing ISO" jokes, please.

There ain't no copper on those holes
Edit: or is it that the left holes in top row aren't connected? Dunno if they don't have traces on the other side though

MOQ means Minimum Order Quantity. You either reach it or you don't, there's no "pushing for higher MOQ", just pushing for more orders.

Is one of the columns missing a via connecting it to a switch?

220317-0

EDIT: Looks like a couple of the column vias are missing. Were they too close to the pad or something?

Column tracks top side go through the pads, or sometimes through a via near the pad.

Amazing! Looks like they got the right effect on the stabilizer holes but completely disregarded it for the border.

No. Pads are plated with silver.

Really? That's interesting, haven't seen that anywhere else. Are you not worried about corrosion?

No... Immersion Silver is an alternative to Electroless Nickel/Immersion Gold (ENIG) with the same kind of properties.

Made an account to reply to this.  Rama already said it will be cheaper than the newly released U80 on Instagram in a comment I asked a couple weeks ago.  So expect sub $320 at the very least.

... you are correct, I don't know how I forgot that already.  I guess for some reason in my head I thought the U80 was around $350.  My bad

Can I just ask again if there is any way this will have a ISO option?

Also I would part with big money to see this design in a 100% layout or even a 75%.  100%, loose the top row but keep navigation and pgup/pgdw and numpad.  Would look extra wide and very cool.

Prototypes were received and built. I am in the process of evaluating the prototypes and making some small tweaks. We will take some good photos soon. June launch is not possible, now... some things need to be sorted out which will take more than four days.

It will take a little effort but it will be possible.  The plate file will be available and the case is designed to allow other pcbs, you would just need to wire the daughterboard up.

Sounds doable! I think this is what I'll end up doing. Think Wilba and co. have knocked it out of the park on this one. Totally getting that brutalist vibe off it.

Curious, what's the daughterboard for? Integrated USB-C?

Zeal60 rev 4 is Thermal compatible and has ISO support.

Mekanisk is running WT60-D MEKANISK now, which has ISO support.

https://mekanisk.co/collections/fjell-classic/products/unannounced-product

It is also 60% tray compatible.

Note: when I say compatible, it means you have to solder a JST connector to the PCB so you can connect the daughterboard USB-C, the on-board USB-C on those PCBs is not used in Thermal. I can add this connector to Thermal orders.

This is excellent news.  Please add to the orders for sure.  I am going in on this one.  I would still love to see a 100% KB render using this design.  The proportions would make it look really cool.

Seems quite an elegant PCB, I'm def gonna pick one up if I go for this board. Shows you can do ISO/ANSI in a PCB properly and still have per-key RGB for those that want that!
