Thanks go to you, Luke, for making this project happen.

BTW, I would like to mention I've taken advantage of the fact that the
laptop EC firmware is open source, and started working on adding support
for other keyboard layouts than the default QWERTY so that I can enjoy
an AZERTY layout on my PFY laptop in April 2017. :)

In order to start developing right away, I have set up a development
environment as described here:


I am now waiting for the AZERTY keyboard to complete the setup (and
discover how good or bad I have been at soldering the cable which
connects the NUCLEO and keyboard).

The nice thing is, to test the firmware, I just have to connect the
NUCLEO to my dev machine through USB: it is recognized as (among others)
a HID input device.

Stay tuned here for progress reports. With any luck, I'll type them
using the newly supported AZERTY keyboard. :)
