KB-7001 is a fixed-position, split-layout single body ergonomic keyboard from Unikey. Chicony KB-7061 appears to be the same keyboard (the PCB is still marked KB-7000M and it uses Unikey's FCC ID), and Chicony (who own Unikey) also sold this model as the Chicony KB-7001 under FCC ID FMA44H, which has an earlier final action date (by one year).

Description

Unlike most keyboards of this type, the case is angular rather than curved. There are two separate space bars, one per side, and the ctrl and alt keys and the space bar are all adjacent. Other than this, the layout is normal Asian 101. The keycaps are Tai-Hao TI series cylindrical double-shot.

Two-stage feet are provided.

Example from 1995 or 1996. Despite the date, there are no Windows keys present. The connector is reported to have been DIN-5 before being replaced with a PS/2 plug.

The switches are given as "ALPS 簡易軸" (Alps simple shaft) and have white or colourless sliders, indicating Alps SKBM White; the Chicony examples use Alps SKCM White.
