1. Disclamer

  • It is the same as PS2M0115. Please refer to the manual of PS2M0115.

2. Correspondence keyboard

  • It is only the following keyboard that confirms the operation.

SUN Type5e

  • The following keyboard thinks that it will operate though doesn't confirm.

SUN Type6   keyboard(non-USB)
SUN Type5   keyboard
SUN Type4  

  • The PC to confirm the operation is only the following.

SHARP Mebius PC-BJ100M (Linux)
OASYS V-BIBLO FMV-5100NU/W (Windows95)
NEC PC-MA10T ( Windows2000,Linux )

  • USB-PS/2 converter to confirm the operation is only the following.

AREA Convertino SD-PS2CUSB

  • The following USB-PS/2 converter is assumed to be a support off the subject because there is a problem in operation.

Audio Technica ATC-USBPS2

3. Feature

  • The SUN Type5 keyboard can be connected with PC with the PS/2 port.

  • It is considerably smaller than this kind of product to be marketed.

  • The Fn key like HHK can be used. But no key is assigned Fn key in default.

  • STOP key is allocated in Esc key.

  • Compose LED is allocated in KANA LED.  But I have never seen it light.
  • The key assign is done for an English keyboard. Therefore, when it is a Japanese keyboard, \| key on the left is allocated in ZENKAKU/HANKAU key.And NIHONGO key on lower right is allocated in \| key. Please change the key assign if you use Japanese keyboard. But it becomes impossible to input "~`" with an English keyboard when it is done however.

4. Cabling

  • The SUN keyboard is connected with the Mini-Din8P port of this converter.

  • Connect the converter to the PS/2 port with Mini-Din6P male - male cable. In Akihabara, it was sold for 300 yen-400 yen ..

5. Customizing of keyboard

  • It is the same as PS2M0115. Please refer to the manual of PS2M0115.

  • The address map is as follows.

0x00-0x7F key scancode translation table(SUNPS/2)
0x80-0xBF Fn key translation table

0xC0-0xD7 N/A
0xDA PS/2 RX delay
(x100us) ... default 0x05(0.5ms)
0xDB 0...with ten key   1...without ten key

0xDC PS/2 TX delay
(x100us) ... default 0x10(1.6ms)
0xDD polling loop delay
(x100us) ... default 0x05(0.5ms)
0xDE N/A

0xDF Fn key scancode
(PS/2) ... defalut 0xFF(disable)
0xE0-0xFF 0-9,A-F key scancode translation table restore data(read only)

7. Explanation

  • The PS/2 key scancode of S key and G key is 0x1B, and 0x34. The SUN key scancode of that is 0x4E and 0x51. If you set value 0x34 at address 0x4E,when the "S" key is pushed, input "G".

  • The scancode of "2" key is 0x1E.The scancode of "F2" key is 0x06.Loog at the value of address 0x9E and 0x9F.

  • If you set value of address 0xDB to 1,NumLock LED may be turned off at power on.

  • 0xDA, 0xDC, and 0xDD need not change if converter is not unstable.

  • The Fn key is voidable by the set of an unused PS/2 scancode in 0xDF.
  • 0xE0-0xFF is read only.If you change the key assigh of 0-9,A-F key, It returns to the initial state according to the timing of the startup of the converter. In a word, an irreversible change cannot be done.

  • After 5-10 seconds have passed since the converter startup, use the value of 0xDA-0xDF. Moreover, it is not used in "configure mode". In a word, even if the unexpected value is set, it is possible to retrieve.

8. How to use "configure mode"

  • It is the same as PS2M0115. Please refer to the manual of PS2M0115.

9. Extra

  • The microcontroller(PIC16F648)'s  No.13 pin connect to GND(0 Volt) , "configure mode" can be prohibited. However, please do not practice the person who doesn't understand the meaning.
