What's the status on this project? I have PS/2 mice, but only serial on my 80286 boards. Are PCB schematics and BOM available, or how is this distributed?

Eagle PCB files added.

Now you can make your own, or maybe improve it.

Did you make any progress concerning pointer lag when using certain KVM's?

One note: I tried uploading to aisler and OSH park, but both complain. Aisler because of the dimensions layer not having any PCB boundaries (I think they are in the Dimension layer in your file), and OSH park has multiple complaints.

Not really, i just use a KVM that works.
But the Firmware is opensource, maybe one with more knowledge can help ? :O

i don't have any idea, i just used dirtypcbs and it worked fine for me.
Its also cheaper then oshpark.
Because you get 10 pcbs 5x5cm for 16,95$.

Ok, thanks for the info. I might order there as well, but I haven't yet given up on using one of the other providers. I have a minimal fix on the PCB (distance from one trace towards a solder pad) and I might generate some gerber files for other PCB providers.

I will make a pull request once I have this all working... ;)

Do you mind if I redraw the schematics (and eventually merge it with XT/AT keyboard converter)? As it is, it's rather... funny :)
