Here, QMK runs in a Pro Micro on a receiver module, and communicates only with an nRF51822 microcontroller module that in turn does wireless communication. The nRF51822 maintains a matrix of keystates received from the same microcontrollers on each of the keyboard halves. The matrix.c file contains the code to make the Pro Micro poll the external wireless microcontroller for the key matrix.
