Chicony KB-5161 is a series of keyboards from Chicony. The details below are incomplete and potentially subject to errors.
Appears to be the 2-key rollover series.
- Alps SKCM Blue ("ALPS", 1987 PCB)
- This code refers to at least two different keyboards:
- Cherry MX Blue and either alps.tw Type TWB 2B or 3 Cherry MX clone — both variants cite "CHERRY SW" on the PCB, thus not yielding the name of the clone manufacturer; as Chicony only cited Aristotle as their source of Cherry MX clones, it's possible that these switches are an earlier type of Aristotle Cherry MX clone
- Alps SKCM White ("ALPS", 1989 PCB)
- Alps SKCM
- Alps SKCM Blue; PCB is labeled "KB 5162/5161A ALPS–N KEY"; the case is 489 × 209 × 42 mm and the unit weighs 1.45 kg
