Connect PS/2 Keyboard directly to Bluefruit EZ-Key

by ywei2016 on Thu Feb 25, 2016 4:58 pm

Can I connect a PS/2 keyboard directly to the TX and RX pins, and instantly turn a PS/2 keyboard to a bluetooth keyboard? Of course, I will have the battery and pairing? Or I must use a micro-controller?

Thanks

You must use a microcontroller. The EZ-Key expects ascii serial. PS/2 is different
