kinesis_stapelberg keyboard firmware
This folder contains the firmware customization required to run QMK on the custom controller for the Kinesis Advantage created by Michael Stapelberg.
It differs from the
alvicstep keyboard in that the existing QMK Kinesis Advantage project uses the existing controller board provided by Kinesis.
The controller board hardware is described here
Mapping the pin assignments was done using the corresponding matrix description provided at this link
This code makes no attempt to drive the four LEDs provided on the controller board.
Building the Hardware
If you want to perform this customization, these parts may be helpful.
|13 pin connector for function keys and finger keywells||4||Digi-Key||WM14526-ND|
|10 pin headers for thumb clusters||4||Digi-Key||609-3250-ND|
|8 pin cable for thumb clusters||2||Digi-Key||SAM8928-ND|
|2 pin right angle header for reset||1||Digi-Key||3M9467-ND|
Since the proper mounting of the Teensy board places the reset button in a tight space, I added a 2-pin header to the reset and ground pins on the edge of the board. Shorting these two pins together will reset the board. I also put female to male header jumper cables on these so they could be accessed outside the enclosure. The exterior cables can be seen here.
To build with the default keymap, run
make kinesis/stapelberg while in the QMK directory.
This keymap contains a dvorak implementation as well as media and symbol layers.
make kinesis/stapelberg:dvorak while in the QMK directory.
