Keyboards are commonly used computer input devices used to input data and control commands to the computer. A keyboard is typically coupled to the processor to allow a user to transmit commands to the processor. A keyboard may transmit alphanumeric commands to the processor and another input device (a mouse, track-ball or joystick) to control items shown on the display. In operation, keys on the keyboard are selectively pressed to input data or otherwise send commands to the processor. A computer keyboard comprises a base on which alphanumeric input keys supported by corresponding resilient biasing members. The keys on a computer keyboard may be divided into basic keys and functional keys which are generally fitted on a plate. There are several types of keyboards categorized by the switch technology employed in their operation. They are dome-switch keyboard, capacitive keyboard, mechanical-switch keyboard, buckling-spring keyboard, hall-effect keyboard, membrane keyboard, and roll-up keyboard. Wireless keyboards are becoming popular these days. The wireless keyboards currently available are either infrared based or RF based transmission systems.
