tinkerBOY Terminal RJ45 to USB Converter v1.0 now uses QMK Firmware (a lot better than Soarer’s converter firmware) so you can use your old IBM Model M Terminal and compatible keyboards on a modern computer with USB support.
NEW: You can now purchase an adapter with QMK Firmware supporting both Via and Vial. VIA is a feature of QMK Firmware while Vial is a fork of QMK Firmware. Vial is an open-source cross-platform (Windows, Linux and Mac) GUI application and a QMK fork for configuring your keyboard in real time. For more info about Vial please go to their website at https://get.vial.today/.
Take a look at some screenshots.
2 Ways to remap or configure your keyboard with QMK in realtime:
Vial – Download the Vial app or use the online app available at get.vial.today (recommended).
- Remapping (realtime)
- Full NKRO, if the keyboard supports it.
- Compatible with Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
- Scan code set 3
- Tap Dance
***All converters are fully tested.
