JetVan kits and parts are available from TheKey.Company
JetVan is a MiniVan-compatible PCB designed by TheVanKeyboards and produced by TheKey.Company.
The original interest check thread from November 2019 can be viewed on GeekHack. A handful of prototype PCBs were produced and have rarely been seen in the wild.
Following the closure of TheVanKeyboards.com in October 2019, TheKey.Company acquired exclusive rights to produce and sell the MiniVan, including existing PCB and case designs. This deal included the JetVan PCB.
On June 11, 2021, MiniVan keyboard kits became available for purchase directly from TheKey.Company. Kits are available with JetVan PCBs and include an injection-molded plastic case in one of four colors, an aluminum switch plate, a cable, and assembly hardware.
JetVan supports a single layout featuring a 6.25u spacebar and arrow cluster. The layout for JetVan was proposed by community member jetpacktuxedo. Since only a single fixed layout is supported the front of the board is covered in a silkscreen that includes the legends of the corresponding keys printed next to each switch location. The back of the board contains all of the components, the name of the board, revision number, and the text "Designed by evangs".
JetVan uses a USB C port for its connection to the host computer. The top 3 rows of switches are oriented in the south-facing position while the bottom row is oriented in the north-facing position. None of the switch locations include through-hole pads for in-switch LEDs. There are 10 surface-mount RGB LEDs located around the edges on the underside of the board. Holes for PCB-mount switch legs are present for every switch position. Holes for a PCB-mount stabilizer are included for the spacebar.
JetVan features a modified MiniVan layout that includes a 6.25u spacebar and support for an arrow cluster on the bottom row. Several other PCBs also support this layout, such as Ketch, Minisub, and Model-V.
Only one revision of JetVan has been designed.
Only 5 known prototype boards were produced for the prototype run and very few pictures of bare PCBs have been shared. The boards are covered in a red solder mask with white silk screen details.
The production run PCBs sold by TheKey.Company include a black solder mask with the same white silkscreen design as the prototype boards. The back of the PCB still includes the text "Designed by evangs" rather than the updated "Distributed by The Key Dot Company LLC" label found on TKC's MiniVan HS PCBs.
