Electronics is an important part when it comes to creating a keyboard that will last over time. For this reason, all Typemaster PCBs are created using the best materials available on the market.
The FR4 material used withstands TG 170-180 heating temperatures. The copper layer is doubled compared to a standard PCB to 2 oz. The gold immersion plating is also doubled to 2U/inch, providing long-lasting corrosion protection.
Finally, we only use quality electronic components from world-renowned brands such as Samsung or Panasonic.
Each Typemaster keyboard offers a USB-C connection, thanks to the use of a Unified daughterboard (by ai03). This offers you ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, an overcurrent protection, an overvoltage protection, and a noise shielding.
All Typemaster PCBs supports QMK Firmware, and VIA software.
Why no hot-swap PCB? We are convinced that the keyboard you use should not limit you in your choice of layouts or switches you want to use. In creating a plate and PCB that gives you choice, we don't want to limit you by offering a PCB that only works with certain types of switches, and for a particular layout.
However, we are sure you will appreciate being able to switch plates quickly, giving you the possibility to use several different types of switches, keycaps, or layouts over the time.
