Cherry MX Switch Breakout Board – SparkFun BOB-13773

Cherry MX Keyswitches are not just the industry standard, but they’re adictively clicky and reliable for tens-of-millions of key presses too!

This Cherry MX Switch Breakout Board is an easy way to use our Cherry MX Switches with breadboard or perfboard based projects ranging from a single-key user-input to fully-custom 101-key keyboards.

In addition to breaking out the switch contacts to breadboard-compatible headers, the Cherry MX Switch Breakout also provides access to an optional switch-mounted LED. Plus, the pin break-outs are designed with keyboard matrix-ing in mind, so you can interconnect as many boards as you’d like into a row-column configuration, keeping the I/O-pin requirements as low as possible.

Features:

  • Support for 3mm LED
  • Footprint for LED current-limiting resistor
  • Footprint for switch-isolating diode
  • Chain-able in row/column matrices
  • Designed to match standard key spacing and keyboard row offsets
  • These boards may be Red or Green

If you want to add an LED you’ll want a 3mm LED and also a current limiting resistor.
