Nyquist Rev. 2

For the Nyquist Rev. 2 PCB, see the Iris Build Guide instead, as that is more applicable. This guide covers just the Nyquist Rev. 1 PCB.

Parts List

Here's a list of parts needed for the build:

  • 60 diodes (through-hole and SMD diodes supported)

  • 2 push buttons for resetting

  • 60 switches (MX-compatible and Alps switches are supported)

  • Case

  • 2 TRRS jacks (included in kit)

  • Optional parts

    • 2 4.7kΩ resistors if doing I2C

    • 2u PCB mount MX stabilizers if using 2u keys

Build Steps

Here's a summary of the build steps:

  1. Solder components

    1. Solder diodes

    2. Solder resistors (optional)

    3. Solder push button

    4. Solder Pro Micro header pins

  2. Add 2u stabilizers

  3. Solder switches

  4. Flash Pro Micros

  5. Solder Pro Micros

  6. Solder RGB strip (optional)

Soldering the Components

(Rev. 1.0 to 1.3 only) Solder the TRRS jumpers on the side with the jack:

Add 2u stabilizers (optional)

If you are doing 2u keys with stabilizers, install the stabilizers now. Make sure the bottom of the stabilizer snaps into the PCB.

Add switches

Work in progress...

If using Alps switches, you will need to modify the two switches that will sit on top of the Pro Micro, since the width of the switch will touch the header pins of the Pro Micro.To modify the switches, you will have to shave off about 1-2mm on each side of the switch. (TODO: add picture here).

Add the Pro Micros (make sure you do this last!)

Solder RGB strip (optional)

Refer to the Adding RGB Underglow Guide for steps to install the RGB light strip.
