| | Keyboard Upgrade -- A generic open source firmware for | homebrew computer keyboard controllers | based on Atmel AVR microcontrollers. | | E-Mail: kbupgrade [at] gmx.net _ _ === What? === Have a PS/2 keyboard, but your brand new computer only supports USB? Your PS/2-to-USB converter does its job only half-hearted? Or do you have a keyboard never intended to work on a PC or Mac, but still want to use it? Then Keyboard Upgrade is for you! Build your own USB keyboard controller and let the free Keyboard Upgrade firmware blow some life into it! Multiple user-defined key maps can be uploaded to your controller and switched at any time, turning your keyboard into a Dvorak or Colemak or any other layout keyboard in hardware. This open source firmware was designed for use on homebrew keyboard controllers based on Atmel AVR microcontrollers--in particular, the ATMEGA series. Currently, these keyboards are supported: - IBM Model M (1391401 and compatibles) - IBM Model M Mini (1392934 and compatibles) - IBM M4-1 (without trackpoint) - IBM Model M 122-key terminal keyboards (1390702 and compatibles) Schematics are included. Support for new controller designs can be added fairly easily by re-using a common set of source code files. _ _ === Lawyer Mode === Copyright (C) 2009, 2010 Robert Homann.
