Cheap-ish Membrane keypad prototypes?

  1. Anyone know who can do cheap(ish) custom prototype membrane keypads?
    i.e. 1-off prototypes.
    This is my own money, so $$ count :->

    Thanks
    Dave.

    They ran an ad in Circuit Cellar a while back.
    (5) 4-switch custom membranes / keyboards for $395.
     
  3. FYI, it is also possible to use a simple plastic membrane and have
    separate PCB mounted "tactile" switches behind it.

    Hello Dave,

    I have used the Farnell "generic" membrane keypads in the past to do a
    working mock-up for customer prototypes.
    Not too expensive and you can "slip-in" you own labels for button
    identification.

    They'll most likely last longer too.

    Hey, what do you mean "the other one"? I'm the other one...

  8. Yep, already got that in place, just seeing what options there are for
    a full membrane.

    Thanks
    Dave.
