Introduction

Using an Arduino Micro as a USB adapter for ThinkPad T60 keyboard with TrackPoint support. Supports different keyboards from the ThinkPad family that shares the same receptacle as T60.

Photo: Modular approach that splits the circuit into the microcontroller side and receptacle + supporting ICs side.
