Make a ThinkPad keyboard USB adapter with Arduino
Hi rampadc, Thanks so much for your reply. what I meant by dead links was actually just that there are no links to the schematics. I would be fine with having boards made (and stealing the receptacle off the original motherboard) but I only have a CS background, I can not design such a board my self.It would be a HUGE help if you would share the scematics with me :)
Well here's the schematics of the board, the only copy of it I have left anyway: https://flashandrc.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/thi...It was one of my first electronics project so no judgy.
Hey Jeppe, it seems that the W500 keyboard uses the same keyboard receptacle as the T60 in this instructable. If you could get your hands on more receptacles, you could build your own boards. I don't have any receptacles left and it's very expensive to get more.
I've left a comment on your other project too.It seems you're the only one who've done this and your tindie shop is closed. The scematics here are only pictures, if you don't want to sell kits anymore could you release the files please? It would really make my day if you would :)
I've had a W500 die on me. I'd really love to keep using the keyboard, but it seems only rampadc ever made this work. Links are dead and tindie shop closed :( Anyone know how to build an adapter now?
