Description Extended Information
QuokkADB - a USB Keyboard & Mouse to Macintosh ADB Adapter, based on a low-cost RP2040 microcontroller, powered by the adbuino open-source firmware, licensed under the GNU GPL v3.

The QuokkADB allows for simultaneous use of most USB HID keyboards and mice with any ADB-equipped Macintosh computer. Each QuokkADB comes pre-programmed and fully tested and mounted in a 3D-printed housing. Macintosh computers that support soft power-on can be powered on via the pushbutton on the QuokkADB.

QuokkADB Rev. 2022g is Unidirectional - It allows you to use USB keyboards and mice on ADB-equipped computers, but not the other way around.

Known Limitations

QuokkADB has limited support for USB hubs, but not all are compatible. The IOGEAR - GUH285W6 - 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub is readily available at an MSRP of $9.99 and known to work well. It is based on the GL850G, a very low-cost USB chip, which is commonly used in inexpensive USB 2.0 hubs.

Support for non-US keyboard layouts is largely untested. We welcome any and all user feedback on this front, which can be reported at the QuokkADB-firmware GitHub Issue tracker.
