1x Cherry MX Spacebar Stabilizer


52x SOT23 2-Diode Array; Halves component count for diodes, and is pretty cheap.





?x RGB LEDs

Strangely obsessed with Cherry MX based keyboards lately.

Decided to design and lay out my own interpretation of one.

Constraints:
  • Keep to standard keyboard layout to allow use of standard keycaps
  • Keep costs to minimum
  • Keep component count low
  • LEDs. LEDs everywhere. RGB if possible. (I like shiny things.)
