Detecting Key Switch Chatter

Key switch chattering aka contact bouncing is a natural instance in automated switches that can cause one switch press to be discovered as multiple presses. Digital electronics in a keyboard usually filter out chatter and can handle a tiny deviation in chatter in a correctly performing key switch, still, in the case that a switch is defective or damaged, the quantity of chatter can become too big to be filtered. The result is a duplication of key input seen on your PC screen for only one destined key press.
