Technology Explained

Anti-Ghosting: Anti-Ghosting is a technology used in computer keyboards that prevents the “ghosting” or inadvertent striking of multiple keys at the same time. This technology does this by rearranging the electrical pathways of the keyboard circuitry, allowing more than the conventional number of keystrokes to be registered simultaneously without interference. Anti-ghosting is most commonly used in gaming keyboards, allowing gamers to press multiple keys at once to perform complex commands without issue. The technology is also used in some standard keyboards, increasing user flexibility and convenience while typing.

N-key Rollover: N-key Rollover (NKRO) is a technology in the computer industry used to prevent the loss of key presses due to the limitation of how many keys a PC can detect at one time. It enables a PC to detect more than the limited number of keys usually recognized by a computer. By using NKRO, a large number of keys can be pressed and recognized individually even if many of them are pressed simultaneously. This technology can be used in applications such as gaming, typing, using the Internet, or any other task requiring a high accuracy in multiple keypresses. NKRO also ensures maximum macro speed by allowing users to press multiple macro keys simultaneously without overwhelming the processor or causing any conflicts. The applications of NKRO in the computer industry are widely varied and are only increasing due to the ever-growing demand for improved performance in various operations.

TKL: TKL (Ten Key Less) keyboard is a type of keyboard that does not have a numeric keypad, which is usually found on the right side of a standard keyboard. This type of keyboard is often used in laptops, as it is more compact and takes up less space. It is also used in gaming keyboards, as it allows for more space for additional keys and features. TKL keyboards are also popular for their ergonomic design, as they are more comfortable to use for long periods of time. They are also more affordable than full-sized keyboards, making them a great choice for budget-conscious users.
