Pierce 2.0

Pierce 2.0 is a semi-wireless split by durken1.
Published January 6, 2023

The first version was featured back in 2021, and V2 has been around for some time as well. A post by chewiedies pointed me to durken's repo so here is pierce 2.0 for history's sake.

pierce 2.0 is a split modular wireless / semi-wireless 36 key column staggered keyboard. The design is inspired by Corne with more pinky stagger as well as only using 1u keycaps – durken1.

I'm not entirely sure about what specs have been updated. You can build a wireless version or a semi wireless version. For the wireless version an additional receiver dongle is required, while in the semi-wireless version the wired half is acting as a receiver for the wireless half.

Accordingly, there are 3 different PCBs in the repo: wireless (reversible), wired (right), and the receiver.

Supported switches are: MX, Choc V1 and Alps.
