Description

The MurphPad is a numpad with a macro row, OLED, and two optional knobs. It supports several layouts: normal numpad, mirrored numpad, and all 1u for those who just want a macropad. It is compatible with VIA for easy remapping and QMK for those who want a little extra functionality.

The MurphPad will be sold as a DIY kit. The kit will include the following parts:

  • PCB, top and bottom plates
  • Pro Micro
  • OLED Screen
  • Knob and encoder
  • Diodes
  • SMD LEDs
  • Reset button
  • Assembly hardware

Features:

  • Pro Micro alternatives supported (Elite-C, nice!nano, etc)
  • Multiple layouts supported: Normal numpad, mirrored numpad, all 1u
  • QMK and VIA compatible
    • Also supports VIAL
  • MX switch support
  • Compatible with PCB mount stabs
  • 2 Optional encoder positions
  • SMD LED and LED Strip support

There are other capabilities the MurphPad has which require additional parts or software know-how:

  • Support for a 2nd encoder in the top right spot (requires purchase of additional encoder + knob)
  • Bluetooth support through ZMK (nice!nano and battery purchased separately)
    • We will provide guides for this type of build alongside the standard build

FAQ:

What is the difference between 0305 and 7305 Millmax sockets?

    • 7305 = shorter, pricier, better looking
    • 0305 = longer, cheaper, not as good looking
    • They both work fine and are barely different when the board is fully assembled.
      • This is not always true for boards, but it is for the MurphPad because of the FR4 case design.

What is the difference between SMD LEDs and LED Strip?

    • SMD LEDs are a pain in the butt to solder and sort of easy to mess up, but they look better and have dedicated spaces on the board
    • LED Strips are MUCH easier to solder, but they look worse and don’t have firmly dedicated spaces to be adhered.
      • LED strips require a few small wires to connect to the board (not included)
    • They both come with 10 LEDs (though only 8 are needed)
    • They both have the same TYPE of LED, the difference is how you attach them to the board
    • Both will have detailed build guides on how to use.

Is the OLED customizable?

    • The board is powered by QMK (or ZMK if you use Bluetooth) and is as customizable as you can program into it.
    • There is a base set of functionality baked into the default firmware, though.

What if I want to use an Elite C or equivalent?

    • Elite C and all other Pro Micro compatible controller boards work with this kit.
