Finally you can order your keyboard adapters ready to go from me!

Order from my Tindie store. With your order you'll receive a keyboard adapter, programmed with the Arduino bootloader and a LED blink sketch (that is how I test the boards).

With your adapter and a psion keyboard, is it possible to connect the psion 5 keyboard to a Samsung Android smartphone supporting otg via usb?

doh! out of stock both times I got the alert from tindie.

I'll have to be faster! Thanks for getting these produced, it will be very useful. I'm thinking the pi zero w will be my SBC of choice for a psion upgrade. I had it rigged up the other day with the psion talking to the pi via RS232 in the terminal app. I had to use a TTL level shifter to get them talking, but it worked pretty well.

Sorry, I had some production issues and had to fix the boards manually so filling up stock has been slow. There is one on stock right now if you are quick :)
