Hub16 is an external keyboard / macro pad designed to work with software on your computer to enable powerful, context aware macros to be run, ensuring you never have to press a strange sequence of keys ever again. This is particularly useful for PCB design and other CAD tools, as it allows the user to have dedicated keys for common actions which are often tied to awkward keyboard combinations.
This project started as I wanted to utilise rotary encoders to change the grid and trace size in KiCad, along with having dedicated keys for certain operations. Following success of version one, I thought wouldn't it be nice to run a cable between the macro pad and keyboard, so a USB hub was added!
NOTE: Case, key switches and key caps are not included by default, but can be purchased separately. I will try and stock a small number of key switches and caps that can be ordered with Hub16, but any Cherry MX compatible key switch and key cap will be suitable.
All options require a small amount of soldering / assembly, and optionally programming if the default configuration is not to your liking. Documentation including assembly instructions can be found on GitHub.
Includes 16 key caps to suit Hub16. For the "You Choose" options, please leave a comment with the number of each colour required. Please be aware I don't have a large inventory so will get in touch if I have sold out of your preferred colours and organise another option.
Includes 16 key switches to suit Hub16.
Australia Post is currently experiencing significant delays with freight, please see their current status for estimated freight times to your country. They have also stopped accepting untracked parcels, and as such I have removed it as an option for the time being. Express freight can also be organised - get in touch for a quote.
