Tutorial 19: The Keyboard

Postby Mike » Tue Jan 13, 2009 5:11 am

Hey everyone,

Tutorial 19 should be out this weekend. This includes the demo too ;) It covers almost everything about keyboard programming, including:

-Drivers;
-Breaking apart a keyboard;
-Keyboard protocols;
-keyboard encoder 8048 compatible: commands, ports, interfacing;
-keyboard controller 8042 compatible: commands, ports, interfacing;
-scan code sets;
-keyboard IRQ;
-keyboard polling;
-keyboard device drivers

This includes the first tutorial where we are required to program multiple controllers to work with a single device. Using the basic keyboard driver developed in this tutorial, the demo will also be a basic Command Line Interface (CLI) interface similar to a basic command line shell.

Alot of fun stuff coming up! :) If anyone has any additional ideas that they would like to see, please feel free to let me know.
