MG004 is a USB numeric keyboard designed for Cherry mechanical switches (or third party equivalents with the same form factor). It is based on the ATMEGA32U4 microcontroller, which can be reprogrammed (using Arduino IDE) to accommodate different keys. It consists of a PCB, with all surface mount components, the mini USB connector, an ISP header and a reset switch already fitted.
Switches, keycaps and LEDs are not supplied, as there are numerous types to choose from depending on the user’s preference. A mini USB cable will be required to connect this to the host computer. I have added a photo to the listing to give an idea of what the completed kit looks like, once some typical user supplied switches, keycaps and LEDs have been added.
Full instructions are provided at the link below, including dimensions needed to mount this is in a housing of your own design, should you wish to do so.
Because many keyboards nowadays do not feature a numeric keypad (including mine). And I really like mechanical keyboards....
The fact that under the skin it's really an Arduino clone, which can be reprogrammed over USB easily to accommodate different key functions.
MG004 used the SparkFun Pro Micro as a starting point for development. The Pro Micro was developed by SparkFun Electronics, based on an original design by Team Arduino. The MG004 circuit schematic is released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/).
MG004 has been designed for hobbyist use only and is not to be used for safety or business critical applications. The kit assumes basic through-hole soldering skills.
