This weeks' Red Hot PCB doesn't operate like your normal staggered keyboard but is an ortholinear keyboard custom designed by PrimeKB.
This week’s Red Hot PCB is a custom ortholinear keyboard, “Prime_O,” designed by PrimeKB.
The Prime_O keyboard is different from your normal staggered keys by having vertical columned keys. It runs on an open source firmware called QMK that provides for a fully programmable keyboard and macros. The PCB has an Atmega32u2 micro controller that supports the N-key, per-key LED backlighting, and also the N-key rollover. It is tested by flashing the MCU with the prepared firmware and then shorting the pads for each switch, to make sure that each short provides an output.
