    Default Amiga PS2-Keyboard MINIMALISTIC CABLE Adapter

    Recently I built myself an Amiga PS2 Keyboard adapter - my idea was to build it in the form of an extension cable. I managed to integrate the converter right into the cable.

    Adapter can be used on A2000,3000,4000,CD32 and CDTV. For A2000 and 3000 you can use DIN version of the cable adapter or use DIN-PS2 adapter. The converter itself is based on MMKeyboard design so apart from standard keyboard functions you can use this driver in Workbench to assign actions to multimedia keys.
    Cable itself is based on a roline-quality factory moulded cable, that ensures best durability.

    In my experience even some USB Keyboards (possibly not many, but have succesfully tested few Genius keyboards) also support PS2 protocol and therefore also can be used with the usb-ps2 adapter.

    Special version of the PS2 keyboard adapter for Amiga CD32 with integrated RS232 serial port now available too. (as CD32 features simple serial port functions - RX and TX signals - on the same MiniDIN connector). That simple serial port allows playing serial multiplayer games or filetransfers between PC/Amiga and Amiga/PC.
    Black serial nullmodem cable compatible with the adapter is available too if you need one. With either 9pin or 25pin serial depending your needs.

    UPDATE: Special Parallel port keyboard adapter now available too. It allows connecting either Amiga exernal keyboard or PS2 keyboard to Parallel connector (takes power from joystick port-joystick can be connected too, adapter is pass-thru). When driver is loaded you can use the keyboard in system friendly apps. Consult the parkeyboard on aminet for more info.

    Price for the cable adapter (MiniDIN conns) is 17,5 € + shipping (Paypal gift /or buyer pays fees or SEPA banktransfer)
    Full Black cable version is for 18,5 €.
    DIN conn version of the cable adapter 18 €.
    CD32 special version with integrated serial port 28 €.
    CDTV special version of the adapter full-black is for 18,5 €.
    Price for the DIN-MiniDIN adapter (if needed) is 1,5 €.
    Price for the USB-PS2(MiniDIN) adapter (if needed) is 2 €.
    ParKeyboard Adapter (compatible with external Amiga keyboards) 15 €
    ParKeyboard Adapter (compatible with standard PC PS2 keyboards) 19 €

    I have a question, with this cable I can connect any ps2 keyboard to my Amiga 2000, plus a DIN-PS2 converter? Its like a Lyra 3 keyboard adapter?

    DIN version of the cable adapter added. This can be directly plugged into A2000 and A3000 (with the DIN connector).
