ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is part of the Microchip Get Launched design program!

ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is an open source, custom programmable, mini 8-key keyboard/keypad. Each key allows you to reprogram and use it as macro keypad or even dedicated shortcut keys without any coding experience! Powered by the advanced and yet easy-to-use Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) open source firmware.

Getting started with ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is easy. Just plug a cable in the microUSB cable and connect it to your computer. It works on Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux distributions.

ANAVI Macro Pad 8 can be customized to fit various use cases: video or audio editing, entertainment broadcasting, gaming, programming, etc. It boosts your daily productivity by providing amazing level of control with gorgeous light effects on your fingertips!

ANAVI Macro Pad 8 will be available as a do-it-yourself kit. The advanced and developer kits will not require any soldering. Both will feature Gateron red mechanical switches and transparent keycaps. Users will be able to assemble them in minutes with their bare hands.

The maker kit will require soldering but provides the opportunity to pick your own mechanical switches (compatible with Cherry MX plate footprint), color of 3mm backlit LEDs, and key caps.

Proudly Open Source

ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is an entirely open source project that combines open source hardware with free and open source software.

Only free and open source software tools like KiCad, OpenSCAD and Inkscape were used to design ANAVI Macro Pad 8. Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) is the default open source firmware. Arduino sketches will be available as examples for people interested in explore embedded development with a mini keyboard. Source code and schematics are available on GitHub. A comprehensive user’s manual will be provided.

All printed circuit boards will be made in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, EU and packaged in eco-friendly recyclable cardboard boxes.
