E-Blocks PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard and SVGA Interface Board US$20.00

E-Blocks PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard and SVGA Interface Board

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.

This E-block allows investigation of PS/2 devices such as keyboards and mice, as well as VGA, SVGA etc. outputs for computer monitors. The main function of this E-block is to add the capabilities of inputting and outputting PC-based information.

A set of jumper links are available which allow the PS/2 SVGA E-block to be set easily for all PICmicro microcontroller devices. The patch system available on board makes this board compatible with numerous other controller devices.

E-Blocks PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard and SVGA Interface Board Features

  • PS/2 serial data and serial clock
  • VGA horizontal and vertical sync controls
  • VGA red, green and blue controls
  • Voltage shifter for RGB signals
Note that this E-block is for 5V systems only.

Block Schematic

E-Blocks Overview

E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.

Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
