When I search ebay for HP 46021A I see 5 of them right now and at
least 2 of them come with a cable. The 46201A is probably the
most common HP-HIL keyboard you will find. If you are hoping for
a 98203C they are indeed very rare. You are right that the cables
are less common but they do come up some times usually in lots
with other HP-HIL devices, however as you point out the connectors
are available so if need be you should be able to make your own.
On the whole I would prefer a PS/2 to HP-HIL convertor since most
USB keyboards I have seen are poor quality.

The requirement is
to use USB keyboards
for items that require a HP-HIL keyboard
You say there’s
of HIL hardware in existence
find me 2 QWERTY key borders
and 4 interconnecting cables they are not that easy to
problem is when the equipment is
moved people throw away the HP-HIL
keyboard assuming a new
keyboard will do the job
sockets are these required
as the equipment has the sockets

that is urgently required is a
standard keyboard interface to HP-HIL
Ie USB to
I’m not sure whether you’re saying you
urgently want to use
a HIL keyboard with a USB system, or whether you want
to use a USB keyboard
with a HIL system. Either way I don’t understand the
there’s plenty of HIL hardware in existence.
The approach I outlined in my previous message
should work regardless
of which you want, however. The only difference will
be in the USB stack &
interface on the Cortex M series, whether it acts as a
USB device or host.
(Though acting as a USB host is going to be more
working with average USB HID hardware shouldn’t be too
the HP-HIL mail connectors not a
problem there are 2 types
A part number 1-1761184-1-ND this goes
part number 5-1761184-1-ND this goes into
Last time I
looked digeky had
over 200 of each
That’s good, what about the sockets?
