Mechanical Keyboard Prototype With V-USB & QMK

Mechanical Keyboard Prototypes

This is a relatively complete guide on how to build a mechanical keyboard prototype and get it functioning with QMK. Two different microcontrollers will be demonstrated (ATMegs32A, ATMega328P) and it should provide a solid starting point for anyone wishing to build a keyboard from the ground up. This is going to the the base I… Continue reading Mechanical Keyboard Prototype With V-USB & QMK

NeoPixel LED Controller

NeoPixel LED Controller - Example Candle & Strip Lights
