What is QC KB? 

QC KB = Quickchip keyboard emulation. This allows a traditional POS that uses keyboard input to be compatibale with some of IDTECH's newer device offerings that can output both magstripe and EMV compliant data as keyboard strokes. 

This is typically used in conjunction with a VPOS - virtual POS. These types of POS usually exist in the form of a web page served from a web browser.

Why QC KB?

This reduces the amount of complexity required for integration, and also reduces the time needed for cert. The solution complexity and time complexity drop, and the user experience / setup is easier.
