Some weeks ago I started looking into getting an AT keyboard to work on a Geneve.  I contacted JediMatt to work on modifying the code for his USB keys, but during my search constant google searching I came across an old post from years back from Tony Knerr (The Great Gazoo).  And this post was about getting a PS2/AT keyboard to work on a Geneve and converted the AT key codes to XT key codes using a PIC12F629 MicroController (1k).  This was not his project, but he was able to get it working and had a photo (no diagrams) of it actually working and he embedded it into a AT keyboard.

 

Well that got me wondering, how this could be done.  After even more google searching I came across a page that had a wiring diagram and the code for the PIC12F629 to do exactly this, or so I thought.  The links were dead.  After even more searching I came up with a wiring diagram and multiple versions of the code.

 

I did have some trouble getting the PIC12F629 programmed, but once I figured out the bit that was causing the code to fail when verified it was resolved.

 

 

So now I am happy to report...  IT'S WORKING!  :grin:  :grin:  :grin: 

 

All keys, upper, lower, number pad, function keys, etc.  Even the num lock and caps lock.

 

Just another piece of hardware we will be able to add to our Geneve Arsenal!

 

I will be getting some made to test an actual PCB run.

I am working on the PCB layout today and should be submitting an order for a test run.  If all goes well in two weeks should have a working version for distro.

I'm ordering the boards...  With some luck they are good.
