Hello,
My mother has a Kinetic RiscPc that she still uses alongside a windows PC
Her Acorn mouse is failing, and I was hoping to use the USB mouse on a KVM switch (the screen and keyboard already use this).
Is there anywhere I can get either a USB podule or adapter to allow this that won't cost the earth? Does anyone have one they will sell me?
Thanks in advance.
Andrew

I think SmallyMouse is what you're looking for. You can read more about it on the project's website (SmallyMouse2 Universal USB to Quadrature Mouse Adapter) and on the CJE Micro's product page.

I prefer this SmallyMouse2 USB to Quadrature mouse interface for Acorn, RiscPC, BBC A3000 etc. You can buy it on Amazon

This reminds me to finish off my podule to do just that. The boards are in, now I just need to finish off the software. And fix the hardware issues that I find smile
