The System76 Launch Configurable Keyboard #Keyboard #OpenSource @system76

The System76 Launch Configurable Keyboard is designed to provide the ultimate user controlled keyboard experience, with open source mechanical and electrical design, open source firmware and associated software, and a large number of user configuration opportunities. It is registered open source hardware with OSHWA US001062 and licensed CC-BY-SA-4.0.

The switches are mounted in sockets that support any RGB switch with an MX compatible footprint. Examples are the Cherry MX RGB switches and the Kailh BOX switches. Switches can be removed easily at any time with the included switch puller.

Launch connects to a computer using the included USB-C to USB-C cable or USB-C to USB-A cable. It supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 with speeds up to 10 Gbps with either cable, provided the computer supports these speeds. It provides 2 USB-C and 2 USB-A connectors that also support USB 3.2 Gen 2, with the 10 Gbps bandwidth shared between them on demand.

Each switch has an RGB LED that is independently controlled by firmware. This allows for a number of RGB LED patterns to be selected.

The keyboard matrix uses diodes on all intersections, providing full independent scanning of each key position.
