pi50 Keyboard Kit

From: $35.00

SKU: PI50KIT Categories: , ,


The pi50 mechanical keyboard is a solder DIY keyboard kit that uses a Raspberry Pi Pico controller and supports per-key RGB, a 0.91″ OLED display, and an EC11 rotary encoder. Inspired by the OLKB Preonic, the pi50 offers a fully functional keyboard condensed into a 50% size. The 5 × 12 grid supports either full Grid layout or the MIT layout with the use of a 2u spacebar and stabilizer.

This PCB is available in 2 colors, Purple or Green, and comes with a matching FR4 plate case which can be upgraded to a clear acrylic case.

This board comes with full support for QMK and VIA. You can also use alternate firmware designed to work with the Pico.

The small OLED screen is used to display your active layer, indicators for Caps, Scroll, and Num lock, as well as which RGB mode your keyboard is on.
