Keypad Decoder / Encoder
The Fireloch™ KPD-12A keypad decoder / encoder is designed to work with the Velleman model #12KEY keypad, available from many electronics supply stores.
Born from necessity and a desire to not have to create a keypad circuit every time a new design required a keypad, the KPD-12A keypad decoder / encoder provides a quick and easy method of incorporating a keypad into your design.
The decoder / encoder comes will all the part required to assemble the unit and a straight pin strip header to connect the unit directly to a keypad (with a socket soldered to the keypad) and insertion into a breadboard. You can, of course, opt to use different connectors to suit your circuit’s design.
The decoder / encoder
also has built in
ICSP (In-Circuit Serial Programming) which permits the unit to be
programmed with a PICkit 2 or PICkit 2. Thus, allowing the unit to be
programmed with custom code. So if you don’t like the firmware that
comes with the unit, no problem, just design your own.
