A RP2040-based controller for the Framework laptop Input Cover, connecting to the keyboard matrix, touchpad, power button, fingerprint sensor LEDs, keyboard backlight and Caps Lock LED. This board is useful for building a Framework keyboard into an external keyboard, reusing your old cover, prototyping alternate motherboards for the laptop chassis - or whatever else your heart might desire!
This is a small board, but it's easy to mechanically fasten to the Input Cover. All language keyboards are supported in hardware. The RP2040 comes with 4MB (32Mb) of flash memory, which is plenty for anything you might want to do with it. The SWD and BOOT headers are also available. The USB-C connector is detachable from the board, so that you can easier integrate this keyboard into all kinds of projects of yours. I recommend using a metal saw if you want to detach the connector - that will result in the cleanest cut.
The board also exposes the fingerprint sensor using an SL2.1 USB hub - not just that, it adds two extra USB ports for wiring up your own USB devices! The onboard 74HC595 chip also has 4 spare output pins that you can toggle from RP2040 software, in case you'd like to add a few extra LEDs or the like.
This board's hardware supports all features of the Input Cover:
These features have been verified to work using test code found below. The software to turn the Input Cover into a plug&play USB keyboard&touchpad combo is currently being written. New versions of software can be easily uploaded over USB with no technical knowledge required.
Download the firmware here, or see the QMK fork in the Documentation link to compile it yourself.
The board's silkscreen shows the correct way to plug the Input Cover in, as well as pinout of all headers available on the board.
This product is fully open-source - hardware and software sources are available through the links below. Feel free to use it as a module part of your own PCB if you so desire.
