NEW PRODUCT – PS/2 Keyboard+Mouse to USB adapter

Window-294

NEW PRODUCT – PS/2 Keyboard+Mouse to USB adapter. This is a nice solution to wanting to use PS/2 devices (such as our capacitive touch pad or magstripe readers). It’s also handy if you want to connect a keyboard and mouse to a Raspberry Pi or Beagle Bone without taking up two USB ports. Inside is a full translation chip – a small USB microcontroller that will translate the PS/2 into “USB Keyboard” and “USB Mouse”

We tested this with a Pi, Bone, Linux, Windows and Mac desktop computer and they all worked flawlessly.

  • Total approximate length: 7 inches (178mm)
  • Cable length without connectors: 4 inches (102mm)
  • Weight: 25g

  1. This can also be used for connecting a traditional Arduino (or other microcontroller), as a keyboard or mouse, to a computer, without needing the micro to do USB. The PS/2 keyboard protocol is relatively easy to implement by bit-banging, and a gadget like this will do the work of converting that to USB. At least in theory!
