DIY keyboard questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay so I want to DIY a keyboard, I was just wondering if anyone knew if the plate is necessary or just aesthetic??

I'm going to be using a  GH60 PCB and then make a custom case for it.

I think it is, especially if you type really hard.

PDBs are pretty strong. Unless you sit on your keyboard, I don't think it'd break from normal gaming/typing. If you properly support the pcb with... well... supports, you'll be fine.

It is going to be pretty vital for long term reliability. What the plate does is take stress from typing off of the pcb and solder joints. Without a plate, over time the solder joints will work harden and crack from the constant stress.
