Look at the "h87a" column.

You must use screw-in stabilizers on AT LEAST the spacebar and 2.75 right shift.

I CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THIS PCB WILL FIT YOUR CASE, even if it is listed as "probable" by the spreadsheet linked above. If you have doubts, wait until someone else with your case tries this PCB.

Specs:


  • TKL PCB, programmable via QMK. - https://github.com/hinnebusch/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/h87a
  • MX plate/PCB mount only. NO ALPS SUPPORT ON THIS VERSION
  • "Skinny A87" form factor - same footprint as B87, but same USB placement and stab layout as A87.
  • Standard ANSI and WKL bottom rows, ISO enter, short right and left shifts, 2u backspace
  • Top-side Mini USB port
  • Bi-directional spacebar and right shift stabilizer mounting (north or south) - You must use screw-in stabilizers on AT LEAST these two positions
  • RGB underglow
  • One-color in-switch LED
  • Powered by Atmega32U4 MCU
  • No physical reset switch - just short two pins on the PCB (for case compatibility)
  • In-switch indicator lights - connected via jumpers
  • Pins to solder a daughter board on (Moon TKL, for example)
  • Fully soldered and pre-programmed with a basic TKL map out of the box
  • SPI pins
  • Breakaway USB port for cases that use USB daughterboards
  • Matte black solder mask w/ white text

I was told that the KMAC board(s) have a USB port that extends further out than a typical a.87 PCB. Someone may correct me if that's not true.

So far at 31 sold including 5 dedicated to an Australian vendor - more than halfway to MOQ. Very nice showing after only two days.

Ah sure enoguh it looks like it, top is a Leeku 87 which I believe is a.87, bottom is a KMAC:



So the USB would be a little recessed into the case, not bad.

Thanks for the info, the pic helps a lot. Yeah I guess it'd be up to whether the case would allow you to plug into one if it's more recessed.

No physical reset switch - just short two pins on the PCB (for case compatibility)

Sorry for the dumb question, but does this mean I have to take the PCB out of the case to reflash it, or is there some sort of hotkey I can set up in qmk to put it into flash mode?

Not really well versed in qmk.

Yes - the default keymap has Fn + R as the "soft reset" hotkey within QMK. The pins are incase you need to do a "hard reset", and take the place of a switch.

Currently at 37 PCBs ordered.

We're at about 65 ordered

I've updated the design to better fit boards with no clearance for the outdent where the spacebar stab goes. A "downside" of this is that you have to use screw-in stabilizers for those two spots. I've also updated the spacebar and right shift footprints to allow the user to use either stab orientation - north or south. Twitch VOD of the process:

Will update the OP/product listing tomorrow, it's late af

Thanks to Creamy for the help/guidance on the stab "pears"  ;D

Has there been a GUI or something released yet for QMK besides https://config.qmk.fm?

Spare me the QMK evangelism please; I want to grab a couple of these before this closes, but I don't want to deal with QMK..

Unfortunately, no, there isn't anything yet.

This is also one of my biggest gripes with QMK -- I eventually found myself with enough QMK boards to make learning how to do everything "manually" worth it, but in most people's cases (yourself included) it's really much too complex. That being said, I think something is being worked on, but you'd need to inquire with folks like MechMerlin or Jack Humbert himself.

Aside from cloning, installing, installing dependencies, updating, reading the documentation, figuring out the learning curve, figuring out how to change the keymap, figuring out how to flash firmware, "oh, an error", googling how to fix errors, reading thread after thread on how to fix something so you can move one little tiny step forward to the next error..

Nah, it's all relatively easy and worth it just to move a switch around.

Sounds like I may have to grab one just to get comfortable with QMK and all it's idiosyncrasies.

The QMK Configurator (linked) is pretty good, and h87a is on there. I need to work with mechmerlin to get more layouts for the board on. You pretty much click and drag the keys you want, where you want them.

The code itself is pretty clean as well, and is clean to compile and use as long as you're just replacing keys. If that's all you're trying to do you shouldn't run into issues.

Feel free to join my Discord at https://discord.gg/u3eFQNz for tech support if/when the time comes.

With the final version/revision of this PCB, yes it will - yuktsi is supplying me with the Jane V2 PCB outline so I can adjust the h87a so it'll fit.

Halfway through the edits for the next/final version.

1. Edited outline (about 1-2mm smaller in all directions) and larger corner radii to better fit some boards, including Jane V2
2. Extend USB port about 1.3mm outwards for a better fit in cases (was too sunken in on some with the protos)
3. Changed diode package for less parts (same matrix, so QMK should be the same) and less cost.
4. Rerouting a bunch of it bc I can make it a bit tidier now

At over 150 ordered atm with a few vendors jumping on board to stock the PCB.

Reminder that this GB will close this Friday, Oct. 5, at-or-later-than Midnight EST.

Reminder that today is the last day to order the h87a at group buy pricing - Once the buy is closed I'll make it unavailable to buy until I order the PCBs, at that time I will start pre-order pricing ($50) for a limited number of the PCBs (probably half of the extras I'll be ordering).

Depends on how many you order - that should be normal for 2 PCBs. Note that's base shipping price (for one) + PP fee (described in the product listing) + additional price for second PCB packing/material/weight.

May be a weird question, but I forgot to ask before I ordered: are the PCB-mount pin holes Cherry spec? I'm not sure if anyone's been adjusting them to fit the thicker Gateron/Zealio pins, but I'm planning on using Cherry PCB-mount and want a tight fit.

Also, do you know how thick the PCB will be?

I've tested the holes with Zealios and they're snug but the switches can be removed fine. Cherry PCB mount is a slight bit looser, but still snug.

Just FYI, the upcoming v2 switches from Zeal are supposed to have the slightly smaller Cherry-sized PCB mount pins.

No, they haven't been ordered (or put up for sale) yet. I'm waiting on the blank ones to arrive so I can build and verify they're good to go before the large order.

The final prototype (ver 1.4) works perfectly with the original .hex files. There's a slight outline issue that I've fixed, and I'm ordering the group buy version (1.5) tomorrow.

Pre-orders will be available this week (Tues/Weds) for $50 per, I'll likely have 25ish available fcfs on my site.

Seems that way. If the production starts at the end of this week I'm looking at ~4 weeks until they're shipped to me, then flashing/packing/shipping on my end. Likely closer to mid December (before Christmas) as I'll be out of town at the beginning of the month.

The EU proxy doesn't appear to allow preorders (the GB page shows out of stock).

Hiney could you allocate some stock over there? I forgot about this GB and missed out during the buy period so would be nice to grab one of the preorders before I forget. Thanks!

They have 20 PCBs heading their way, 18 are claimed iirc. They may have two left. I can probably get yours on their shipment, just PM me on Discord (@hineybush#0069) and we can set that up.

I'm a little confused why my shipping cost was $8.55 to the US (Oregon) given in the OP it should be a lot less (even including Paypal's fee)...?

The $1.30 is just the PayPal fee (which is actually the GB/$45 amount, the pre-order/$50 amount is a little higher), which is added to the normal shipping fee for the final cost of $8.55

Not exactly sure, but I expect to have them in 2-3 weeks.

I'll be out of town on a business trip from the end of November until Dec 6, I'm hoping they arrive during my trip so I can get to flashing/packing/shipping as soon as I return.

Only issues I've seen so far are a few of the 22ohm USB resistors touching, because I had the factory use them to replace the STF202 ESD chip I originally wanted to use. An easy fix for me. The chip caused a lot of issues with getting the PCB into bootloader mode, I think because it may be designed for USB 1.1 only? Not 100% sure. Regardless the PCBs work flawlessly without the chip, as long as the resistors aren't touching ;)

Sorry I don’t fully understand the issue.  Are a few resistors touching on all the boards, but it’s not a big deal? Or, on a few boards, there are resistors touching, causing those boards to fail QC?

Almost all of the single orders are packed. I'll be working on the rest of the non-vendor/proxy orders in the next 2-3 days with a goal of getting them all to the post office by Friday. The vendor/proxy orders will be sent out by mid next week.

Looks like people will start receiving these today. I've redone my site and added a project page for the h87a, with default keymaps, links to .hex files, and other relevant info.

Just built a Keycult No. 1 with one of these PCBs tonight. I noticed that right shift is really sticky compared to the other stabilized keys. There's resistance on the way down and it doesn't spring back like normal. Is there something tricky about the stabilizers in that position? Maybe I gummed up them up with too much/thick lube. I'm using the clear Zeal stabs.

I think I know why.. The right shift and spacebar stabs are bi-directional (the stab wires can be in either north or south-facing direction) which makes the footprints slightly oblong. My best guess is the stab is loose in the mounts right now. You'd be able to fix this by loosening the stab screws slightly, pushing/pulling the stab in the wire/clip end's direction, and re-tightening the screws.

Thanks, I thought that was related. I loosened and retightened in the correct spot and it works great now. When I was building, I noticed the screws in that stab kept sliding towards the middle of the oblong slot once I tightened them down. The tension from being screwed down in the wrong place must have deformed the stab housings enough to squeeze on the sliders.

Thanks for putting this project together.

I've been meaning to add that to the project page on my site, check it out in the next few days.

To connect the caps lock LED, locate the jumper pads (three next to each other, would be either J1 or J2) and bridge the center pad to the pad with a dot next to it, or to the opposite pad to add it to the standard led backlight.

Note that I may have those pads backwards, I won't be able to check until tomorrow.

Yep! Should be okay. I'd recommend using a small bit of wire without insulation or a diode/LED leg, but they aren't necessary.

Hey, yeah! I printed out all of the labels once they were sold. Took me a couple days to get the packing in order, they'll be dropped off to USPS tomorrow.

Can you clarify what you mean by "thinner?" I'd really like to buy one of these to put in a nerd tkl case, but the usb connector needs to be on the bottom side of the pcb to fit. This is literally the only thing stopping me from ordering one right now.

Thinner meaning 1.2mm thick, vs the "normal" thickness of 1.6mm which most PCBs use. I have no plans to make a bottom-USB version publicly available atm, sorry to disappoint.
