Keycap Colour

A beautiful mechanical keyboard for all your retro projects!

The rosco_m68k keyboard is a specialised TTL Serial-compatible mechanical keyboard for your rosco_m68k - and it will work with other UART-driven retro and single-board computers too!

This keyboard cannot be used with a modern computer (i.e. PC or Mac) without additional hardware and drivers - we do not support this configuration.

Note: actual PCB colour, key cap colours and legends may vary. Kit optionally includes a standard PC keycap set with all required and some additional keys.

This is one for the early adopters - This has no case right now (we're working on it - and in the meantime we're making 3D-printing files for some stand-offs available!)

Features

  • 67 keys with genuine Gateron KS-9 (brown) 5-pin switches (included)
  • Cherry PCB mount screw-fit stabilizers (included)
  • Option to include a compatible OEM profile PC keycap set
  • Full N-Key Rollover (NKRO)
  • ASCII and Scancode modes for maximum flexibility
  • TTL Serial interface supporting 115200 or 9600 bps
  • 3.3V and 5V operation for maximum compatibility
  • Command interface for enhanced software control
  • Switchable between ASCII Serial and make/break scancode modes
  • Built-in firmware support in rosco_m68k - plug in and go!

Who can build this?

The rosco_m68k Keyboard is designed to be easy to solder, and no special skills or equipment are needed! Simply grab a regular (ideally temperature-controlled) soldering iron, some solder (we like lead-free 0.6mm diameter) and have at it!

  • All SMD components come pre-mounted and programmed
  • Through hole components (supplied) require only basic soldering skills
  • Plenty of space around components, no fiddly bits
  • High-quality solder mask and tented vias reduce the risk of hard-to-spot bridges

All boards and components are the very highest-quality and we only deal with reputable manufacturers and component wholesalers.

What else do I need?

In addition to the base PCB and components and soldering gear, we recommend the following:

  • 6-way female-female Dupont cable for connection to your rosco_m68k
