I am currently working on a project, well simply designing a new type of mouse. Do anyone have any example of project involving the sending of data to PC through PS2 port to move a cursor? Just that, PIC, PS/2 port, cursor moves. and of course all the button presses, but i think i can work my way around that after reading some articles.

Just that, a simple example of PIC sending data through PS/2 port to move cursor and detect button presses.

preferably 16F877A. Reason is, I do need some of the features, and a sizable amount of pins for my 'mouse', not to mention cost, availability, and ease in programming. Programming part preferrably in C, although I can look into Assembly to make sense of it all.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

As far as I remember, It should be an application note about implementation of a mouse with PIC microcontollers.

I recommend you visit microchip's web site and take a look at to the Application Notes.

Regards.

I have seen in the final year one group build the mouse for disable people. and they did use PIC16F877 microcontroller. Try to google it up the PIC applications u should able to find it out .
