There's a large variety of them that differ in how they feel and sound.</p> <p>When building custom keyboards, often switches need to be soldered to the PCB. Keyboard builds that don't require soldering switches are referred to as <em>hotswap—</em>installing and changing switches is as easy as inserting them and pulling them out (switch puller required!)</p> <p>These SP-Star switches are a <em>linear</em> switch, which refers to a smooth switch actuation. They move straight up and down without any tactile "bump" or clicking noise. This is in contrast to a <em>tactile</em> switch which provides tactile feedback in the form of a “bump”, or a <em>clicky</em> switch that has a bump as well as an audible click sound.</p> <p>Learn more in our <a href="">Switches 101 article →</a></p>
