Unified Daughterboard S1 version (latest v1.1) (USB-C). This new S1 revision has a slimmer form factor and a different internal cable connector compared to the pre-existing C3 daughterboard series.
This Unified Daughterboard S1 features:
- Slim form factor, allowing for a smaller footprint. Secured to the case by 2x M3 screws;
- New more durable Molex Pico-Ezmate connector that clips in vertically;
Available (see the option below) with one cable of approximately 150mm.
The Unified Daughterboard Project is an attempt by leading designers in the mechanical keyboard community to standardise the USB daughterboards used for their custom mechanical keyboard projects. It was initially envisioned by users ai03, Wilba, Hineybush, Xelus, Xondat, aeryxz and Maximillian.
This daughterboard's main characteristic is integrating a USB Type C connector and the needed circuitry for USB 2.0 operation in a small PCB that can be screwed to a keyboard chassis; this significantly simplifies the assembly and design of the main circuit board.
More information can be found on the GitHub page of the project.

Note: The cable should be handled with care. Any kinks can cause connection issues. The cable connects from the top, not the side.
In addition, we have the C3 version of the Unified Daughterboard available, which maintains the previous form factor to ensure compatibility with keyboards designed with earlier layouts.
