Term Definition

Hysteresis is a term used to describe the input gap between the actuation point and reset point. Most switch reset points are shallower than the actuation depth (higher up), so a key has to be released almost fully in order to reset for the next press in most instances.

Hysteresis can make double-tapping and rapid same-key typing difficult, so there's a trade-off in function.
