Större keyboard kit

75.00 inc. VAT

Större is an easy-to-build full featured 75% keyboard using only through hole components.

It uses a separate QMK and Vial compatible microcontroller (like the Pro Micro or Elite C) to enable flexibility in connectivity and to further simplify the soldering experience (no more soldering tricky USB ports).

Större is the big brother of our Lagom keyboard and adds an extra row for function keys.

Features:

  • Flexible layout options (ANSI, ISO, 6.25u or 7u or split space, split backspace)
  • 2 rotary encoders (for things like volume, next/previous track and brush size)
  • OLED screen (for things like WPM counts and adorable cats)
  • Great looking integrated sandwich style FR4 case (with the PCB floating between a switch plate and the base)

This kit contains most of the things that you will need to build your own mechanical keyboard and program it yourself using QMK or Vial. See what’s included and what’s not included in the description below. Find the build guide here, the firmware here and the flashing guide here. 

You will need a separate microcontroller to build this keyboard. It’s not included, but we sell them here (Pro Micro) and here (USB-C).

Availability: In stock (can be backordered)

SKU: 012 Category:

What’s included:

  • Printed circuit board, base and switch plate
  • Diodes (88)
  • Capacitors (2)
  • IC sockets (2)
  • ICs (SN74HC138N) (2)
  • Standoffs and screws (to build the case)
  • Rubber bumpers for the base

What’s not included (and you’ll need you source yourself):

  • MX compatible switches (3 pin or 5 pin, up to 87 of them depending on the layout)
  • A controller (Större supports Pro Micro, Pro Micro USB-C, or compatible footprint controllers like the Elite-C, Nice!Nano, or RP2040 based controllers with a Pro Micro footprint)
  • Keycaps
  • PCB mount stabilisers (for bigger keys like Space and Shift, the amount you need depends on the layout you go for, a regular space bar requires 6.25u stabs, a 7u requires 7u stabs and a split bar requires 2 x 2u stabs)
  • OLED screen (we sell these here)
  • 2 Rotary Encoders (we sell these here)(and rotary encoder knobs)
  • RGB light strip (optional, but possible to add a WS2812b light strip under the PCB for extra glow)

What tools and equipment will you need to build this keyboard:

  • A soldering iron
  • Solder
  • Flux (optional but recommended)
  • Flush cutter pliers
  • A small amount of electrical tape

Supported layouts:

 

Supported layouts include:

  • Regular caps lock or stepped caps lock
  • ANSI (with 2.25u left shift, 2.25u enter and 1.5u pipe) or ISO (with split left shift (1.25u + 1u) and ISO enter key)
  • Regular 2.25u left shift or split left shift (1.25u + 1u)
  • Regular 2u Backspace or split backspace (1u + 1u)
  • Bottom row options:
    • 1.25u, 1.25u, 1.25u, 6.25u space, 1.25u, 1.25u
    • 1.25u, 1.25u, 1.25u, Split space (2.25u + 1.25u + 2.75u)
    • 1.5u, 1u, 1.5u, 7u space, 1.5u
  • Two rotary encoders or optionally 2 switches in their place
