This is the PCB to build a keyboard for a Commodore PET computer or Mini PET kit.

The board is the same size and has the same mounting holes as the Chiclet keyboard on the orignal PET 2001, so can be used as a direct replacement for that. It is also the same width as the original Mini PET, so goes well with that.

The layout is that of the Chiclet keyboard, incuding all the graphical symbols. It is electrically identical to the normal / graphics keyboard on later PETs (20 key numeric keypad). It is not compatible with the business keyboard on 80 column PETs (11 key numeric keypad).

It is also useful for bench testing Commodore PET boards due to it's small size.

This version takes any standard 6mmx6mm tactile switches. The white ones I used to use were Panasonic EVQ-PAC04M, which were light touch switches that were quite nice to type on. 

This auction is for a PCB only. No switches, connectors or cables (or indeed PETs or Mini PETs) are included. Parts availability is a little tricky at the moment, so make sure to check the parts list (attached below) to ensure you can source all the parts required.

See my other listings for a white version and also one designed for 12x12mm switches and keycaps.
