Look at the "h87a" column.

I CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THIS PCB WILL FIT YOUR CASE, even if it is listed as "probable" by the spreadsheet linked above. If you have doubts, wait until someone else with your case tries this PCB.

Specs:

  • TKL PCB, programmable via QMK. - https://github.com/hinnebusch/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/h87a
  • MX plate/PCB mount only. NO ALPS SUPPORT ON THIS VERSION
  • "Skinny A87" form factor - same footprint as B87, but same USB placement and stab layout as A87.
  • Standard ANSI and WKL bottom rows, ISO enter, short right and left shifts, 2u backspace
  • Top-side Mini USB port
  • Spacebar stab is under the spacebar switch (south-facing). Check your case/plate for this
  • RGB underglow
  • One-color in-switch LED
  • Powered by Atmega32U4 MCU
  • No physical reset switch - just short two pins on the PCB (for case compatibility)
  • In-switch indicator lights - connected via jumpers
  • Pins to solder a daughter board on (Moon TKL, for example)
  • Fully soldered and pre-programmed with a basic TKL map out of the box
  • SPI pins
  • Breakaway USB port for cases that use USB daughterboards
  • Matte black solder mask w/ white text

Wanted to grab one for my MIRA, but need to sell a few things first. Glad that the PCBs are reasonably priced.

On a sidenote: The TX 84SE has two LEDs for the logo, right above the arrow cluster. To be 100% sure: those aren't supported, right?

Correct - this has no LED support currently. I still have some time to update the PCB file and I plan to - I might be able to add some generic/properly positioned LED spots but I know it'd be a massive pain in the ass to support every board.

Yeah, that's fully understandable. Are there any other keyboards with those two LEDs above the arrow cluster? I'd love to have those, but if it's too much of a hassle for you, I respect that.

Not sure. I'd like to add some other boards to the "LED compatibility" as well though, so if you could get me rough spacing (or even a good top-down pic) I can see what I can do.
