Look at the “h87a” column.

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
  • Spacebar stab is under the spacebar switch (south-facing). Check your case/plate for this
  • 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

nice.


#3

Is an Alps PCB planned at some point in the future? I’d love to finally make use of my Orange Alps, but I’d much rather use QMK than the firmware Leeku uses, Jigon iirc.


#4

I have one of the prototypes and can confirm, this is a good pcb.


#5

Yep, one day eventually. Mayyyyybe by the end of the year.


#6

Sounds good to me! I’ll try to sell my Leeku Alps PCB in the meantime.


#7

@theillumedpanda Sell it to me. I’ll buy it. :wink:


#8

Sure, hit me up on reddit and I’ll gladly update my latest mechmarket post with a new timestamp. Alternatively, we could also use keebtalk’s classified section.

45 ordered total so far - my second set of prototypes should be reaching their buyers this week, so I’ll have a better idea of the compatibility soon.
