Something like this: Small board fitted on top AY chip plus 8 wires connected to mainboard. It is Gerald project from this topic Is there any recent project to connect a PC (PS/2) keyboard to the CPC? On pictures is first board with few mistakes , i order second one, (no kynar links and i move pins for easier and shorter cable connection).


Do you know that all the signals you need are available on the PPI ? That's also why my original board takes place on (or under) the PPI  ;)

Do you know if this ps2 adapter introduce some kind of "noise" or interferences on the cpc bus ay related, ppi related or original joystick / keyboard related?

Perhaps is better to put it on the PPI than on the AY?

Sorry to necro post, but I'm really needing one of these adapters so that I can have my 464 routed through a PS2 kvm - I have around a dozen computers and only space for 1-2 keyboards, so where possible I'm trying to stack them on shelves, and redirect the keyboard to one that is shared amongst them all. The 464 and the Spectrum +3 (which appears to be technically impossible due to the Amstrad gate array) are the final ones that I'm needing a solution for.


Did anyone purchase one of these boards from piotr/zaxon and never get around to installing it? He's confirmed that there are no more being produced unfortunately :(

Does it still allow to press many keys at the same time ?
