Pete Johanson's revxlp is a variant of the Reviung41 keyboard, but low profile, and supports controllers with the XIAO footprint.
Published December 5, 2022

The revxlp is a variant of the Reviung41 – designed by Pete Johanson. Monoblock split, low profile, and using the XIAO footprint of controllers.

This project was brought to my attention by Pete himself, better said by the draft of his advent calendar post, which will mention this model in two days. ;)

The revxlp is a 41/42 key low profile (choc v1) unibody split keyboard, supporting hotswap sockets, two thumb layouts, and single color backlight per-key LEDs. It is a remix of the revlp by Cyril, who created it off the original reviung41 by gtips.

Besides being low profile, the revxlp is designed to use Seeed Studio XIAO or compatible controllers, e.g. the Adafruit Qt PY controllers.
