so this iici turns on but has no sound and had a battery leak. i cleaned off some of it and heres is the pictures. is it fixable at this point? some of the green that goes over the traces came off when cleaning. i hope that wont desrroy it. Thanks
Dunno anything about these things yet, but working on that. I found a board with what should be way more than enough I/O for converting a KBD mattrix to USB. Wat's really interesting about is the Analog I/O. Is it possible to do a simple video scaler on this platform? Doubtful it can output a VGA signal, how avout DVI?

I guess I should also ask if doing a key matrix to USB controller is possible/practical? ISTR seeing Arduino used for that function. I know this board is crazy overkill for that, but if I've gotta start somewhere, might as well find an I/O intensive, 5.5V compatible package. This one should work, using ribbon cable looped over and back underneath the peripheral connectors, fitting snug as a bug in a rug underneath the KBD of a Mac Portable on a cable converter shield.
Or I'm out of my depth along with being out of my mind in the AM . . . as usual.
