CHERRY MX BOARD 1.0 BACKLIGHT Mechanical Keyboard

Those crazy crustaceans over at MadShrimps (get it?) have the Cherry MX board 1.0 backlight mechanical keyboard on the test bench today.

We are getting the full n-key rollover functionality (all keys are being read at the same time), while anti-ghosting makes sure that there will be no input errors. Despite the lack of software to drive the LEDs, we can always control these via the dedicated function keys and multimedia buttons are available for the user as well.
