[TMK] Keyboard Protocol Converter

Can I get a converter for 9500801 that uses sgi protocol?

I recently tried using soarer's converter, but it didn't work...
it would be better if I could put a new firmware on your Soarer's converter and use it,
but I'm asking just in case, thank you

hasu:
I don't know much about the "9500801" and you can't get its converter here.

According to my quick research the keyboard uses SGI proprietary protocol . Pinout and voltage is not compatible to Soarer's and TMK PS/2 converter.
You will need special hardware to convert the keyboard. The protocol is described here.

Oh, I was trying to do something harder than I thought...
thank you so much for finding out the information,
I thought I'd looked it up a lot, but I've never seen it before

hi hasu,
recently got a tatung branded sun5(?) board. atleast what i assumed by the looks of it and i successfully converted it with your tmk sun firmware.
it has a beeper too but as the matrix doesnt support 2 modifiers + extra key (atleast not with shift, alt or metas), i cant use the tmk magic key features to control the beeper.

is there any way i could workaround that? thank you.

hasu:
See this post.
