BT CKP

Introducing the Polarity Works Common Keyboard Platform (CKP). While developing this we had one goal in mind, design the best series of wireless PCBs on the market. Starting from scratch we listened to feedback from the users of the BT60 V1, added extra features, more layouts, more sizes as well as the thinnest keyboard battery for near 100% case compatibility. Based around a common core design we now have 60, 65 and 75 versions, in both hotswap and soldered. As usual our soldered variants have a huge choice in layouts, we also have strengthened the pads to decrease chances you’ll rip a diode off as well as adding some spare fuses on the board to solder in place. We changed the fuse size to a larger one to facilitate easy replacement asa well as changing it for a resettable one so minimise the chances it needs replacement. A huge array of features have also been added. We spent a lot of time collating everything our customers wanted and everything we could possibly fit in the space we had and ended up adding a power switch in the reset well (which fails to always on so it’s not the end of the world if you break it off), an improved reset button that will be more reliable, 12 LED RGB underglow on all models, single colour key backlighting (solder your own leds on soldered, leds preinstalled on hotswap), a reset jumper so you can reset it from the top of the plate without needing to pull the keyboard apart if you dont have access to the button, a jumper you can cut to disable the charge led for stealth and support for up to 3 encoders on the 65 and 75 soldered variants. We also noticed that some users have had issues flashing the hotswap version onto the soldered board and vice versa. Now the firmwares are common between the versions, you can even flash a 75 firmware onto the 60 and it will work, but without the extra keys of course The Polarity Works CKP series of keyboard PCBs is set to totally shift the wireless PCB game.
