  • IBM Trackpoint
  • Many layouts
  • Backlit
  • RGB underglow
  • Open Hardware

Features

DK60TP allows some customisations like RGB underglow, caps lock led or mouse emulation by using trackpoint.

For all pinout above, pin 1 is represented by the square hole.

Trackpoint

To use trackpoint you need to connect the MOUSE PCB with the MAIN PCB. Trackpoint need to be connected to the MOUSE PCB.

Pinout

  1. Vcc
  2. GND
  3. D2 (data)
  4. reset
  5. D5 (clock)

Capslock led

Capslock led can be tuned to :

  • enable internal led
  • disabled it
  • use external led

To do this you need to play with the 3 pins connector placed near the reset button.

Pinout

  • 1: +Vled (square pin)
  • 2: Integrated led
  • 3: GND

Example

Integrated led

Place a jumper between pin 1 and 2.

External led

Connect your led between pin 1 and 3.

Disable led

Remove the jumper or place it between pin 2 and 3.

RGB underglow

To add more leds (use WS2812B with capacitor) simply use RGB connector on the mainboard.

⚠️ Do not connect RGB connector if you use the second PCB (those with mouse buttons).

Pinout

  • 1: Vcc (square pin)
  • 2: GND
  • 3: Din

Firmware

DK60TP still in development and for now does not have associate firmware, but it will be supported by QMK firmware.

Used softwares

I've only used Open Source software to make all parts of this project.
