You’ll have received various parts in your kit, but you’ll also need to purchase some other parts to finish your keyboard.
The kit is the basis the keyboard is built from. It contains most components you’ll need during your build:
- 2 × Lily58 KB PCB
- 58 × 1N4148 Diode
- 2 × TRRS jack
- 2 × Reset button
- 4 × 4700 Ohm resistor
- 2 × 128×32 pixel OLED displays
- 20 × RGB LEDs
Required but not included
Other than the included parts, you’ll also need other parts to complete your build. You may be able to get most if not all of these at the same vendor you bought your kit from. The parts you’ll need:
- 2 × Arduino Pro Micro compatible microcontroller, ATmega32U4 5V/16MHz. Exchangeable with an Elite C.
- 58 × MX, ALPS or Choc switch.
- 56 × MX, ALPS or Choc 1u keycap.
- 2 × MX, ALPS or Choc 1.5u keycap.
- 1 × TRRS cable. A TRRS cable is a 3.5mm audio cable with four contacts on each end: the tip, two rings and a so-called sleeve.
- 1 × Micro USB to USB A cable. Depending on the microcontroller you use, you might instead need a USB C to USB A cable.
Optional and not included
A Note on Warranty and Defects. While your kit and components were selected and packed with care, defects can happen. Please inspect your PCB for damage before starting with your kit, and please flash the microcontroller before assembling it to make sure it works. Check out the article How Do I Test My Microcontroller? for more information about verifying the working of your microcontroller. While we will help you out with any questions you have, we cannot accept returns that have been partially or wholly assembled.
