With reading this article Convergent/Unisys/Burroughs B25-K5 is not compatible with AT apparently.

Let me have some time to reseach Acorn keyboard protocol. I'll PM later.

 :thumb: – looking forward to what you find. Thanks also for the information on the Unisys–too bad it's not AT compatible (although I was aware that might be a bit optimistic...)

Man, was that page on the Convergent/Unisys detailed, with schematics and all. Did not come up during any of my web searches earlier.
The guy also built a Convergent to PS2 keyboard converter, with the 8-pin SDL plug.

He also has the same/similar small form-factor keyboard as me used for testing. That one is extremely practical (although mine is USB)

Hi @hasu,

Just wondering if you had time to research this yet, and how feasible it would be to create firmware for the Acorn keyboards with the KART protocol. I can be of assistance wrt. sending a keyboard for this, if required. :)

Hi @hasu,

I am willing to purchase 2 of your USB to USB converters, in order to add programmability to a Ducky mecha mini and a Pok3r. Do you still sell those? How to proceed to order them (I live in France)?

Thanks!
