Wiring up to the AN2131

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

It`s just a AN2131 chip with the required support circuitry - crystal oscillator, power regulators etc. First I took the inputs and outputs of the key matrix and wired them to the GPIO ports of the AN2131. This was just a matter of plugging the whole lot into some protoboard. This didn`t work too well, as the keys would get `stuck` often. This is because an unconnected chip leg can `float` between

on and off due to the residual charge held in the wire. The solution is to add pull-down resistors which allow this residual charge to flow to ground when the key is released. I added one to each input of the circuit. I used a variety of spare resistors from the junk box 320 ohms to 1000 ohms. This is the final circuit diagram:
