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.
- 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
