Evaluation kits for low-profile notebook keyboards enable users to test the devices in their compact product designs.

The kits include a standard production keyboard, controller board, cabling, and documentation. The controller board supports AT and PS/2 interfaces, and no additional work is required to begin evaluating the keyboard.
