I'll start out by admitting that when it comes to hardware I am useless
; to make things worse, I seem to lack the basic knowledge that would let me gather the information I need just from reading threads like this one. I'm straight up confused and need a bit of baby guidance, so to speak (the programming aspect, on the other hand, isn't looking difficult and I'll probably get by nicely once I get to it).
I bought a few Pingmasters, and I want to actually use 'em; I do not
want to open them up (see above) or even cut their cord (see above), so I prefer to have an external solution, such as the one in the quoted picture, that would not modify the keeb itself in any way, and I want to learn how to do it myself
But... I don't fully understand what I am looking at in the picture. Please fill in the blanks and correct the mistakes I've made here:
- The keyboard's plug is plugged to a _________ (DB-9 adapter to ???), of which the green bit IS an integral part.
- The green bit connects to the wires with NO soldering required on this part.
- The four wires connect on their other ends to a pro micro
; they ARE soldered here.
I've seen "ProMicro", "pro micro", "pro micro controller", "teensy" and other terms used interchangeably. What is the exact name of this part? Searching for "promicro controller", I've found 5V and 3.3V models. Which one is this?
WHERE do I buy those?
