switch the ish v1 to use the new library path
move the lib into the root of the repo so everyone can use it
update docs and images for the final ish v1 design
The ish, yet another Corne-ish keyboard
The ish is a Corne-ish split 42-key keyboard, specifically designed for the nice!nano, bluetooth/battery operation, and ZMK.
The ish has the following features/anti-features:
Well, gotta learn kicad somehow and the Corne is one of my favorite boards. Like all keyboard people though, I have capital-T Thoughts about the Corne so why not learn kicad by tweaking the Corne.
Also to be clear, this is built with me, sungo, in mind. I will be super thrilled if other folks like it but this board is to make me happy and serve as a learning experience.
The gerbers for the v1 are available here. Top and bottom plates are available as well though regular Corne plates work just fine if you have those already.
AKA arbitrary rules I made up for myself
Battery placement, plain and simple. If the nice!nano is chips-up, a 100mah battery fits perfectly under the MCU with a 4mm header easily obtained from Amazon. If the nice!nano is chips down, it does not.
This is the result of a few of the design principles. The Corne v2 and the Corne v3 end up putting diodes and solder pads on the edge of the board on one half because there's no where else for them to go. On the other side, one direction conflicts with the standoff annular ring placement. So, if I want to keep the diodes and pads away from the board edge and I don't want to move the annular rings, one half of the board must have switches that go the other direction. If I toss my rule against breaking v3 plate compatibility, I'll revisit this.
These parts were specifically used in the design process. If you find other working options, please let me know.
The original Corne is licensed under the MIT license so the ish is as well.
