Inside the K63 Wireless
Just like we mentioned, the frame of the K63 Wireless is made of two parts. The top half retains all of the rubber dome switch caps and is enough plastic to cover the bulk of the blue steel plate. The bottom section is ribbed to support the PCB, and there are many studs as well. All of this comes together to make a keyboard with minimal vibration while being surprisingly robust.
After pulling the arrow keys from the keyboard, we see red Cherry MX switches under the 87-key layout. Larger keys have their torsion bars hidden with support studs to connect the keycaps to. Each switch has an individual LED, which all illuminate the same color; blue.
The keycaps are shot in opaque white plastic and then have been painted black. The legends are exposed sections of the inner core of the switches and allow the light to pass through easily.
Because we can, we show that the secondary switches along the top are not mechanical. Since they are not used often, and it saves money, Corsair opts to use rubber dome switches here and on the left side as well.
For those that are into it, we removed the battery to display its specifications. This Li-Ion battery can deliver 3.78V with 2950 mAh of grunt to that voltage. It is also rated for 11.15 Wh, and if we read the next code correctly, this cell was made in the middle of last year.
The green PCB is a bit boring, but it cannot be seen by the user. We do see a bit of flux residue left on the PCB, but attempts were made to remove the vast majority of it.
Corsair went with NXP to produce the brains of the operation. The LPC11U68 models are all ARM Cortex M0 32-bit MCUs. Without a ton of features, this processor is a bit overkill for this keyboard, but we do like overkill.
At this point, we have attached the wrist rest to the front, and have paired the K63 Wireless to the PC via Bluetooth, denoted with the blue LED at the top. All of the lights there are typically white, power is white, wireless is white, and the lock LEDs are too. The power light can change but is green for a full charge, it flashes green while charging, and will turn red to inform you of the need to recharge it soon.
