Kailh Showcases Analog, Box, and Chocolate Gaming Switches at Computex 2024

Computex 2024 is in full swing, and Kailh, a leading manufacturer of mechanical keyboard switches, is once again making headlines with its impressive display of innovative products. Known for its wide array of switches catering to diverse user needs, Kailh’s booth has become a must-visit for enthusiasts and industry professionals alike. The company's showcase includes the renowned Chocolate switches, Hall Effect and Magnetic switches, and a range of switches designed for gaming controllers and mice.

The Chocolate Switch: A Sweet Spot for Low-Profile Keyboards

One of the highlights of Kailh’s booth is the Chocolate switch, designed specifically for low-profile keyboards. The switch's casing, resembling the trapezoid pieces of a chocolate bar, offers both aesthetic appeal and functional excellence. Available in three distinct variants, the Chocolate switches cater to different preferences in actuation force, actuation point, and key travel distance. This versatility makes them an excellent choice for users seeking a balance between performance and comfort in a sleek, compact form.

Analog Excellence: Hall Effect and Magnetic (Reed) Switches

Kailh is pushing the boundaries of keyboard technology with its Hall Effect and Magnetic (Reed) switches. Both types are analog switches, offering customizable actuation points and a wide range of applications for analog input. Despite their similarities in functionality, the two types operate through different mechanisms. Hall Effect switches rely on magnetic fields to detect key presses, while Magnetic (Reed) switches use a reed switch mechanism. Each variant comes with options for different tactile feedback, ensuring that users can find the perfect switch for their needs.

Precision and Speed: Digital (Regular) Key Switches

Not to be overshadowed, Kailh’s digital key switches are also on display, featuring Box-type conventional mechanical switches and optical keyboard switches. The optical switches are particularly notable for their minimal latency, making them a top choice for gamers and professionals who require lightning-fast response times. Box-type switches, on the other hand, use a spring-loaded mechanism that converts electrical contact into actuation, providing a satisfying and reliable typing experience.

Beyond Keyboards: Switches for Gaming Controllers and Mice

Kailh's expertise extends beyond keyboards into the realm of gaming peripherals. The company offers a variety of mechanical, optical, and Hall Effect switches for game controllers and handheld consoles. These switches are designed to provide precise and responsive input for gaming triggers and buttons. Additionally, Kailh manufactures durable and responsive buttons for gaming mice and keypads, ensuring that gamers have the best possible experience regardless of their preferred platform.

A Legacy of Innovation and Quality

Kailh’s presence at Computex 2024 underscores the company's commitment to innovation and quality in the switch manufacturing industry. By continually expanding its product lineup and embracing new technologies, Kailh remains at the forefront of the market, second only to Cherry in terms of design wins. Their extensive range of switches caters to a broad spectrum of users, from typists and gamers to professionals requiring specialized input devices.

Looking Ahead

As the industry evolves, Kailh shows no signs of slowing down. With ongoing research and development, the company aims to introduce even more advanced and user-friendly switches in the future. Computex 2024 has provided a glimpse into what’s possible, and Kailh’s innovations are set to shape the landscape of mechanical and gaming switches for years to come.

For those attending Computex 2024, Kailh’s booth is an essential stop to experience firsthand the cutting-edge technologies that are redefining the standards for keyboard and gaming switch performance.
