[GURU3D] Cherry releases value segment mechanical Switch called Viola

Quote:
With VIOLA, CHERRY presents the first fully mechanical key switch for keyboards in the value sector, offering price-sensitive customers a complete mechanical solution. The switch has been developed from scratch and is characterised by its unique technical properties: the patented, self-cleaning V-Shape contact system* establishes an efficient connection between two pads on the circuit board. Due to its minimalist, solderless design, the switch offers hot-swap functionality and can be easily replaced or removed from the keyboard. The V-Shape contact system also features a distinctive switching characteristic: a two-stage, linear actuation that's been defined as "CrossLinear" by CHERRY. An actuation force of 45 cN is required for the pretravel of two millimetres. After that, the actuation force ramps up to 75 cN at the end of the travel distance (four millimetres). The resulting characteristic curve enables CHERRY VIOLA to offer ergonomic overtravel and fast reset. Also, CHERRY specially designed the shifting characteristics to meet the requirements of the target consumers.

I suppose that's why they had to release a competitive product. Though, to be fair, I have never tried any of the cheaper options, so I can't really comment on how these would stack up.

The description of these switches makes them sound pretty nifty. Being cheaper would be a cool bonus.

if this is their "budget" switch, I wonder what's in stock for the highend market?

I'm not a total kb enthusiast, but apparently this is an evolution of the dome/membrane style switch, which is also hotswappable. I'm curious enough to get a board just to try it out.

I am eagerly awaiting the Lekker switch from Wooting. It seems like it will be the best highend switch available, assuming you like linear switches.

I thought analog switches had already been done by them with a laser or something. What makes this better than that?
