The Mosquito (an evolution of the
Midge) is open-source too:
Because of the small number of keys this keyboard is matrix/diode free. The switches are wired directly to the controller's (
nRFMicro) I/O pins and ground.
One of the problems with these smaller boards is that they can be a bit unstable. I have a couple of sheets of 1.5mm adhesive neoprene that I can cut up and use instead of bumpons. It's a bit ugly, but it stops the thing from sliding or jumping around – jamesmnw.
