The KeyWarrior chip family encapsulates the whole protocol and electronic know-how for building a keyboard with or without embedded mouse function. Wether you need few or many keys, or programmable macro functions, KeyWarrior is an easy to use solution.

Several options for programming the keyboard layout, including complex macros, make KeyWarrior very flexible to allow the design of customer specific keyboards.

Currently KeyWarrior is moving to the next generation. If you have a design using the old KeyWarrior chips, please contact us immediately about the transition to the new generation.

KeyWarrior28 is the first of the KeyWarrior II family of chips. It is designed for small keyboards with up to 64 keys.

KeyWarrior100 is now available in samples. It does combine all functionality of the old KeyWarrior family in a single chip and adds many more features on top of that. It supports keyboards with up to 384 keys.
