Description

The controller scans the keyboard by making a different column in "rows" logic-0
therefor the inputs "cols" have to be PULL-UP high. It processes the inputs "cols" and
the newly found keychange (keypress or keyrelease) is converted to the corresponding
scancode (translated set2). Note that an interrupt pin is attached as well to make it
possible to connect this controller to a PIC.

Also note that the keyboard_controller uses an internal clock divider to divide
the system clock of 50 Mhz to 100 kHz. Should you want to use an other frequency
than 100 kHz please do not forget to change Constants.vhd

Features

- Simple debounce algorithm, it checks for stable inputs in last #nr samples
- Ghosting protection
- Module is easy to understand and build out of sub-modules

Status

- Currently used for input processing of a toy-keyboard
