Monochrome backlight

There are two kinds of monochrome backlight for YDKB keyboards.

  1. One is that the backlight is all controlled together, such as YD60BLE, Just60, YD68.
  2. One is that per-switch backlight can be controlled individually, such as Minira, CAD66.

Only the keyboards with per-switch controlled backlight can support a variety of lighting effects, which requires hardware support.
