Released on December 11, 2021
Alexa innovates on typing comfort with leaf-spring top mount, PCB gasket mount, support for plateless configurations, and a comfortable 16.5 mm front height. The Alexa PCB also features in-browser keymap customization with Remap, and comes with epoxy-reinforced 2nd generation Kailh hotswap sockets for resistance against wear and damage from repeated switch insertions. The PCB features high-temperature rated materials to reduce warping and ensure longevity in day to day use.
The PCB supports both QMK and VIA by default, in addition to RemapKeys.
