Re: internal thinkpad keyboard/trackpoint interface
Cool thread. I am working on a tiny PCB with an atmega32u4 to interface with the 0WX4JF backlit keyboard and accept a 30 pin flex cable from the front panel header on the back of the Novena motherboard. This should take a couple of months (I am busy with school) but I'll share it once done. However, here is the pinout matrix if anyone's interested:
Pins are numbered from left while looking at the keys from the top. The last 3 pins are for the backlight. They are Vcc, Control, and GND (left to right). The 4 pins for the trackpad probably use PS/2, but I am yet to unscrew the thing and verify.
