Mouse and keyboard controller chip?
Mark A. Corio email (remove spam text)
I am working on a project where my client wants a PIC driven device to talk to
another piece of hardware as if it were a PS2 mouse or keyboard. I assume that
I can have the PIC easily bit-bang the interface on its end, but I do not know
what to do on the other. I am told that in the old days an 8042 was used to
implement this function and today it is most often integrated in chip-sets,
etc.. Does anyone have a suggestion for idealy a single chip to sit on an 8 or
16-bit bus to implement the PS2 interface? I would prefer a controller chip
over a micro with more software required. Thanks.
