Keycaps

The keycaps are made out of PBT with dye-sublimated legends. The colorway of the keycaps are unique to Atari where they are a bone white color and not the traditional colorway that NMB used for their other AT keyboards.

The legends on certain versions of the keyboards like the German variant contain different legends on the return key with just a symbol rather than the text and symbol legend. Note also that some versions of this keyboard also contain side front facing sub legends as well.

Upper Case

The upper case is made out of a single piece of beige ABS plastic. The plastic is textured due to the molding process that is used to create the upper case.

Lower Case

The lower case is molded from the same ABS plastic as the upper case. A set of slots are located in the lower case that join the two halves together. The feet that are integrated into the lower case are flush with the lower case when retracted. This keyboard contains huge keyboard feet.

Switch Plate

The switch plate is made out of stamped steel. The plate has deeper stamping around the switches so that the entire switch plate could be produced with less material. The plate is only coated with a clear coat.

PCB

The PCB is a double-sided PCB with all traces on the backside of the PCB. There are stickers on the PCB with regards to what language that the keyboard would be in the future.

Cable

The cable is approximately 1 meter long for the coiled variant and stretches up to 2 meters easily. It contains a molded 5 pin din connector with 6 pin headers using a molex connector on the PCB.
