Diverge TM 2 is the first ever transformable 40% matrix split keyboard that could combine with each other. It all started when a redditor wanted to saw the Terminus Mini in half. I started the design with 2 things in mind, portability and ergonomics, The Diverge TM 2 lived up to all my expectations. The onboard Atmega32u4s provide all the power needed for a keyboard and more whilst allowing for arduino compatibility, giving an ease of customisation. The acrylic shell and plate construction allows it to be extremely lightweight, enabling you to carry it with you all day. The Animus firmware is filled with a wide variety of features, no more firmware reflashing for changing keymappings, fully NKRO capable even in boot mode, and more! The Diverge TM 2 is the lovechild of the Diverge and Terminus Mini with the best of both worlds, now available with backlight.

Q: How are the two sides connected?
A: An interconnection is made via the use of TRRS cables.
Q: Does the two sides talk to each other?
A: Yes, they talk to each other via I2C at a polling rate higher than the debounce delay.
Q: Is the backlight adjustable?
A: Yes, the backlight could be adjusted up to 256 levels of brightness, individual LEDs could not be adjusted.
Q: Is the backlight RGB?
A: No, the backlight is a single colour type.
Q: How is the backlight powered? Does this keyboard require more than 1 USBs to power the LEDs?
A: The LEDs are powered by a n-channel MOSFET with pulse-width-modulation and protected by current limiting resistors.
Q: What type of LEDs work with the keyboard?
A: The LEDs provided with the kit are 2x3x4 box type LEDs. but standard 3mm LEDs also work.
Neodymium magnets embedded on the side of the frame allows the two halves to combine with each other with a snap.
