09 Feb 2011: I-CubeX Keys v1.40 (Windows).

Please note that the posted zip file of a released version may be replaced by a newer file without notice, ie. without the newer file being tagged as a new version. If you encounter any issues with the software, please check back here to see if a newer file (ie. same version but dated more recently) than the one you are using is available.

Check the download archive for older releases. A MacOS version is not available (yet). For source code, please contact our tech support. Not the right solution ? We have more software.

System requirements

Installation and user manuals, tutorials and tips

  • There is no installation required if all drivers have been installed.
  • USB-microDig quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.
  • Wi-microDig quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.


  • Supports WiDig, USB-microDig and Wi-microDig.
  • Autoconnect option.
  • Option to reduce window to system tray.
  • Mapping: map the sensor peak or dip value as well as the peak "end" event (return of the sensor value below the threshold) to a keycode between A-Z, and the threshold-crossing value to a-z and/or [TAB], [ENTER], [HOME], [END], [LEFT], [RIGHT], [CTRL-(some character)], [ALT-(some character)], [F1] - [F9] and combinations hereof that form a string.
  • Send the keycodes/strings to a Windows media player programs such as Windows media player, VLC, XMPlay, Foobar2000, browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, just Notepad or else to specialized behaviour coding/measurement programs programs such as Techsmith Morae Observer and Noldus Observer XT for recording and annotation. Using the "advanced" option it's possible to send the keycodes/strings to any Windows program by identifying its Windows handle.
  • Sensor data processing: peak/dip detection (detect the largest/smallest value of up to 16 sensor values over time and output this or a preset value), inversion (dip value maps to lowercase character and threshold crossing value maps to uppercase character), thresholds (the sensor values within the specified range are offset and scaled to the full output range), zooming (set the sensitivity of an input to a specific voltage range).
  • Reset all sensors at once or each sensor individually.
  • Debugging info: display the keycodes/strings sent to the selected software, display messages sent to and coming from the digitizer.
  • Configuration saving and loading.

Known issues

Please notify us if you encounter a bug or issue.

  • The lowercase characters p-z are not received correctly by Noldus Observer XT.
