This board will allow you to use the keyboard from a Atari ST as a USB keyboard on a modern PC. (It will not let you use a USB keyboard on an Atari ST). 

This can use useful for testing ST keyboards, or to convert a dead machine into a USB keyboard or integrate a Raspberry Pi or other single board computer inside.

The keys are all mapped in the firmware on the board to the most appropriate keys on a modern USB keyboard. 

The standard firmware supports the two joystick ports under the keyboard as USB game controllers. These support joysticks only. There is no support for the Atari ST mouse. I can disable these in firmware if you have one of the STs with no joystick ports on the back of the keyboard PCB, let me know when ordering.

This auction is for the built and tested USB keyboard controller board, a USB A-B lead and mounting pillars. No computer case or keyboard is included. 

See the photo gallery for mounting suggestions. The board can be fitted to the base of the case with the USB connector accessible via one of the DIN connectors, or can be mounted on the back of the keyboard.

I am currently in the process of clearing out the stock of built and tested boards I have left. I have no plans to make any more of these USB keyboard controllers.

Questions and Answers

  • Question: do you sell this card to france and is it compatible with an azerty keyboard? Cordially

    Answer: I am not sure about the AZERTY keyboard. It should work, but I have not tested it. EU shipping is difficult from the UK at the moment, so contact me for details.
