Many thanks for this!
But I am confused as which keyboard is this for? The fluke keyboard made by keytronics is a 8031 processor with external rom, but the 9100 inbuilt keyboard uses the Z86 piggyback processors, so is this for another external type of keyboard?

Fluke 9100 keyboard by OAK, back side.I guess so, this is an OAK keyboard for the 9100. Perhaps some smart person can use this code to use in similar OAK keyboards that turn up?

Ah OAK, that’s the original issue keyboard! I am hoping the keytronics keyboard rom for the fluke keyboard will turn up!!

It is great the code is now out there for one of the external keyboards!! Again Thanks for that!

This is the 9100A keyboard.   The FT was several years later and I guess they went to a different supplier.

I did promise I would dump my 9100FT keyboard ROM.   I forgot,  too many projects.  Feel free to remind me.

Above contains link to the FT keyboard ROM data.   Probably best to discuss on the TTL and not here.

Well this is just a idea at the moment which depends on a few things, but I have managed to get a batch of the 2 video chips which are genuine, so was thinking  perhaps getting some of the new type pcb's made and populating them with components so there would be some working cards I could then sell. 

so is there still an interest for these cards or has someone else now reproduced them?

Currently no idea on the cost but I would suspect since the last batch of PCB's for this I had made the price will have increased!

so any comments on this? is it viable or too expensive built up?

I bought my chips from utsource.com.  Both cards I built work fine.

How would someone else reproduce them?  Did you release your design files?  I didn't believe so.
Personally I don't believe there is that much 9100 interest.   Everyone who expressed interest on the original TTL thread got one.

UT source, you was lucky then! hope they last.

yep don't think there is much demand at all now, had the odd email over the years asking for them and most likely they will be to expensive now, but thought I would ask
