WirelessUSB LP RDK (CY4636) provides an exemplary implementation of a 2:1, bi-directional Wireless desktop keyboard and mouse to single wireless receiver. The RDK will help jump-start your Keyboard and Mouse development using WirelessUSB LP (CYRF6936) Radio System on Chip.  WirelessUSB LP is the next generation WirelessUSB device, with high data throughput and low power designed to operate in 2.4 GHz ISM band. WirelessUSB LP has many powerful features that allow users to create never before seen radio applications.

Schematics, source code, firmware and RF gerber files are provided as an accelerated starting point for PC Human Interface Devices (HID) designers wishing to cut the cord on their HID applications.

WirelessUSB RDK Keyboard - The RDK keyboard is a 101-key Keyboard with  multimedia keys (internet, mail etc) and power keys.
WirelessUSB RDK Mouse - The RDK mouse is a three-button optical mouse with scroll wheel. The mouse uses Agilent 3040 optical sensor.
WirelessUSB RDK Bridge/Dongle - The RDK bridge supports both the RDK Keyboard and Mouse. The RDK uses Cypress's famous KISSBind(TM) for binding the Keyboard and Mouse to the dongle.
WirelessUSB LP RDK CD-ROM - The CD contains the documentation, example code and hardware design files - everything you need to design a wireless keyboard and mouse.
