The flagship product of UniKeyboard, the Diverge 4 is an ergonomic split keyboard which walks a different path from its predecessors. With comfort as its first priority and build quality as its other first priority, you can experience the brilliant ergonomics of minimal finger travel and vertical stagger in a master-crafted set of milled anodised aluminium case and plate. The use of individually addressable RGB LEDs allows endless possibilities for customisation. The onboard ARM-Cortex SAMD21G18A provides all the processing power needed to handle any customised keyboard commands, providing quality-of-life customisations and up to 59 layers. The Animus firmware enables a wide variety of features, no more firmware reflashing when changing keymappings, fully NKRO capable even in boot mode, macros, tap dance, dual roles modifier keys, and more! The use of the USB Type C plug ensures future proofing so that you don’t have to worry about messy cable management in the future.

A: No, all kits are shipped with the firmware pre-flashed and a default QWERTY layout loaded onto the controller boards.

Q: What special tools do I need to assemble the DIY kit?

A: You only need a soldering iron and some solder, something like a solder sucker could also be helpful.

Split Keyboard Related:

Q: Is this two separate keyboards or a single keyboard?

A: By default, the two sides are interconnected by a TRRS cable and is treated as a single keyboard by the operating system, that being said, they could also act as two separate keyboards if need be.

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.

A: Yes, the backlight could be adjusted up to 256 levels of brightness with individually controllable RGB LEDs.

Q: Is the backlight RGB?

A: Yes, the backlight is built-in onto the PCB and is individually addressable.

Q: How is the backlight powered? Does this keyboard require more than 1 USBs to power the LEDs?

A: The LEDs are powered by WS2811 controllers, you only need to connect the one USB to your PCB to power the entire LED matrix.

Ergonomic Split Layout
