  • Electronic instruments
  • Point-of-sale terminals
  • Custom keyboards


Key Benefits:

  • Keypads with any combinations of row/column and any pinout can be used without hardware modification.
  • Keypad layout and all key codes can be modified in-house without increasing cost or affecting development time.

  • Optional buzzer provides audio feedback.
  • Allows to operate in parallel with standard keyboard or another USE145.
  • Key Codes, Interface type (PC/XT, PC/AT or RS232), keypad pinout, Baud rate, typematic period and typematic delay are all user-programmable parameters.
  • Parameters that have been defined for a particular application can be stored in a file, retrieved and programmed into a new encoder.
