The price currently unknown. The price depends on how many we order. I am assuming something around 10-20 Euros.
Please just leave a message if you are interested.Up to 4 layers (640 programmable keys)
* Up to 255 custom/macro keys (29 byte strings)
* N-Key Rollover support (USB currently unknown - at least 6 keys as well)
* "Knob" support - can be used for volume, mouse wheel emulation or LED adjustments
* GPO high-current output port (commonly used for LED mods or as a communication port)
* much more features, but my Chinese skills are too inferior to properly understand any of it
Much longer, very detailed description (thanks to litster for the translation!)Spoiler:Thanks to Cameleon’s perfect function and open bottom layer hardware customization option, users without professional knowledge can utilize macros to emulate mouse action, 3 states of Fn, GPO/SCO (LED definitions), PWM pulse width modulation output, delay, digital knob as any mixed group, setup different automated function on software and hardware.
Summarily, Cameleon is currently the only controller that can combine professional level keyboard/muse macros, specially fit for multi-functional, small, flexible control of any mechanical keyboards, including 工控 keyboards (Litster: don’t know what this is in English), ergonomic keyboards, one-hand keyboards, atypical keyboards, full keyboard backlit keyboards, pure hardware gaming keyboards, and financial keyboards.
Full speed USB2.0 mode
Support all 6 sets of keyboard tables (or charts), including USB HID Usage Page 0x01, 0x07, 0x0C key tables, PS/2 code scan sets 1, 2, and 3 key tables, and:
- Support PC-AT, Mac, Unix systems
- Support worldwide language layouts with each language’s modifier layout and LEDs, including UK, US, Japan, Europe, Korea, etc
- Special support for AiKB, world-first Chinese CN layout standard
4-layer, 8-row, 20 column for 640-key programmable matrix design (litster: column and row maybe swapped)
Up to 255 custom macro keys, nested function keys, and extended macro keys (29 bytes)
Concurrent multiple-key no conflict support (N Key Rollover), 6KRO, 3KRO without using diodes, eliminate all USB keyboard compatibility problems (Litster: kind of imply NKRO over USB, but I am not sure).
Complete mouse button support, mouse stick, control stick (requires 8-direction switch separately)
Support rotary encoder, can be defined as volume knob, mouse wheel, or backlight brightness knob.
8-channel GPO high current output port or 1 8-bit SCO status control output port(typically for customized LED, backlight brightness control or communication interface).
8-way KVM keyboard/mouse switching synchronized connection, eliminlate LED line connection.
One PWM backlight brightness control output port, can be used for full keyboard, brightness control, respiratory backlight control (Litster: not sure what this is), or buzzer speaker control.
One current delay output port.
World-exclusive LED indicator superior left and right pair FN: each left and right FN can control 2 key table layers, and support Shift, lock, and sticky switching modes.
Support custom keys press down and release timing (as low as 1ms)
Support 2 delay settings, delay range from 1 to 65535ms (1000ms = 1 second)
Support USB power standby and wake up with dedicated LED indicator.
Support Windows application programming interface to program key layout and setup and write to chip, all features are hardware-only, no need to install any driver or software, (litster: I think here it means that you would not be banned if you have macros or automation because it can’t be detected by gaming services since it is all hardware-based)
Energy-saving low power consumption: 230uA current (USB standby mode)
Operating voltage range: 4.57-5.25V
Workign temperature range: 0°C to +70°C
For less demanding users, they can disregard those advance features, the “chameleon” keyboard can be used like an ordinary programmable keyboard.
tl;dr a fully programmable keyboard controller with macro support for usb and ps2 and n-key rollover.
