Description

This board will allow you to use a ZX81 replacement membrane as a USB keyboard on a modern PC. (It will not let you use a USB keyboard on a ZX81).

This version is designed to use for your own projects (NOT IN A ZX81 CASE). See other listings for a version designed to be mounted on the underside of the lid of a ZX81 case (the connections are reversed)  - https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/63463

Check the picture gallery for clarification. 

This can use useful for testing ZX81 membranes, or to get a simple 40 key keyboard for a project with a Raspberry Pi or other single board computer inside. 

Replacement membranes are available from RWAP software - https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/2529

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

There is a small piezo sounder which makes a click noise when a key is pressed, to give a bit of feedback to the user.

This auction is for the built and tested USB keyboard controller board, a USB A-B lead, and mounting pillars. No ZX81 cases or membranes are included.
