A500 Keyboard -> Ps2
i have searched the forum for similar queries and had found nothing so for
so i have decided to ask
how could one connect a Amiga500 Keyboard to a PS/2 interface, i have wired up the corresponding connectors ie Clk, Data etc.. but it doesn't seem to want to work :/
i'm presuming the clock is wrong or something... i want to avoid using keyrah really...
has anyone else tried doing this before? if so how did it go? and whats the best method?
Thanks in advance!

You need to adapt the protocol with a suitable microcontroller, using software you write yourself.
No-one's done the software for this direction so far.. I started writing it for the PIC controller years ago, then development stalled due to the lack of a logic analyzer. I was so close to getting PS2 keycodes to be sent to the PC, but unfortunately my timing was off somehow and I couldn't get consistent results.
Now those analyzers are pretty cheap, I just need to motivate myself to resume coding. :-)
