I haven't used them but they bought a company called Usar, whose chip I used to interface the common PC keyboard to any serial port on a microcontroller. I have a 8052 micro with a 4 line LCD that I can program directly typing on a spare IBM keyboard.
Semtech has several keyboard interface chips, maybe one could help you. Regards.
Hey what chip is that? And will it work with a PS/2 keyboard? I want to build a program for my Rabbit Core 2000 that will read the input for a PS/2 magnetic card reader and unlock a door. Everything is pretty simple, except for getting the data from the card reader. I figured I'd just have to decode the PS/2 output, but I haven't really thought about it because of other projects. Thanks!
