Check the MiniVan Compatibility Matrix for case compatibility
Coffeevan is a drop-in replacement PCB for MiniVan cases that supports multiple layouts with MX and Alps switch compatibility. PCB-mount stabilizers are supported for all three spacebars. All switches are oriented in the south-facing position. An unpopulated JST header is located on the underside of the PCB to provide compatibility with cases that use daughterboard PCBs for USB connectivity.
The board uses a USB-C connector to connect to the host. The port is located in the top-right to ensure compatibility with MiniVan cases. Tray-mount holes and the reset switch are positioned to maintain compatibility with tray-mount MiniVan cases.
Coffeevan supports two layouts based on the popular Minisub PCB - a split-space layout with arrow keys and JetVan layout. The split-space layout uses 2.75u/2.25u spacebars with a 1.25u key to their right. JetVan layout replaces those three keys with a 6.25u spacebar.
