Looking at the excellent Eclaire XL mini, the only part I don't care for is that it uses a USB keyboard connector. (An Atari adapter may be available later.)  I want to install a Eclaire in an 600XL or 800XL.  A "sleeper" of sorts.

 

A proposed solution is the Tynemouth Software Atari to USB adapter.  There are Tynemouth adapters used for Retropie and other retro computers, so it is a relatively common solution for older computers.  But the rub is that it is $80 including shipping. Not the end of the world, but pretty steep.  This is similar to the issue of attaching an Atari keyboard to a PC which has been discussed in earlier threads.

 

So, is anyone aware of any possible alternatives?  Arduino?  Raspberry Pi?
