Introduction: How to Make PS2 Keyboard Read Display System Based on Arduino
ICStation Team introduce you this PS2 Keyboard read display system in details.The operating voltage of PS2 Keyboard read display system is DC 5V. When you press the keys of letters or numbers, the LCD1602 will display correspondingly and also can control the size of the letters.The advantages of using PS2 keyboard design are the automatic scanning, automatic identification, and automatic coding of the keyboard. Only when you press the keys, the data will be sent out, which reduces the burden of CPU. It is very convenient to use LCD1602 to display. It is a very simple and low-cost analog keyboard display system.
1.when you press the keys of letter or number only, the LCD1602 will display the letter or number correspondingly.
2.when you press the keys of shift plus letter together,the LCD1602 will display the capital letter.

Step 3: Hardware Making Graphic Tutorials
Draw forth the power line and ground wire from ICStation Mega 2560 development board. And the red breadboard plug wire is the power line and black one is the ground wire.
Step 4: Decompose 16 Pins
Step 5: Weld LCD1602
Weld the pins which have been decomposed to LCD1602
Step 6: Connect the LCD1602 to the Bread Board
Step 7: Connect the The Cathode and Anode to the Public Cathode and Anode.
According to the schematic diagram,connect the pin 1 and pin 16 to the cathode and connect the pin 2 and pin 15 to the anode.The black represents cathode and the red represents anode.
Step 8: Place the Slide Rheostat
Connect the pin 1 of slide rheostat to the cathode and pin 3 to the anode, pin 2 to connect the pin 3 of LCD 1602
Step 9: Connection Diagram of Slide Rheostat
Note: By adjusting the slide rheostat to control the brightness of LCD
Step 10: Connect the Pin5 of 1602LCD to the Ground
Step 11: Connect the 1602LCD to the Mega 2560
