I want to use the PS/2 keyboard port of the STK1000 to connect to a PS/2 keyboard.

Has anyone found a 3.3V PS/2 keyboard that could be used with the STK1000? Alternately, does someone have a schematic for a bidirectoral 3.3V to 5V voltage converter that can run at the 16kHz max clock speed.
Has anyone had success using the PS/2 keyboard interface with the STK1000?

google for bi-directional voltage level translator. The ones for I2C work very well, they're bidirectional and plenty fast enough. Check out PCA9306.

AFAIK there isn't a PSIF driver under Linux yet, but if you're game to do that or you aren't using Linux, go for it ;)

-S.

Thanks for the tip on the PCA9306. I'll check it out.

There was an article about a simple two transistor level shifter in EDN Mag. in Feb 2002.
