Keypad to Serial ConverterKeypad to Serial Converter

Punch in your secret key into this numeric matrix keypad. This keypad has 12 buttons, arranged in a telephone-line 3x4 grid. It's made of a thin, flexible membrane material with an adhesive backing (just remove the paper) so you can attach it to nearly anything. The keys are connected into a matrix, so you only need 7 microcontroller pins (3-columns and 4-rows) to scan through the pad. Check the tutorials tab for links to an Arduino library and example code.

We include a 7-pin extra-long header strip so you can plug this into a breadboard with ease.

We sell this handy kit to convert the signal from the keypad to a simple serial signal reducing the number of required pins to 3


  • Weight: 7.5 grams
  • Keypad dimensions: 70mm x 77mm x 1mm (2.75" x 3" x 0.035")
  • Length of cable + connector: 85mm
  • 7-pin 0.1" pitch connector

There is a very nice Matrix Keypad Arduino library that works great with this item. The only thing we suggest is to change the initialization code in the examples to this:


#include  const byte ROWS = 4; 
//four rows const byte COLS = 3; 
//three columns char ke7','8ys[ROWS][COLS] = {   {'1','2','3'},
   {'4','5','6'},   {'','9'},
   {'*','0','#'} }; byte rowPins[ROWS] = {8, 7, 6, 5}; 
//connect to the row pinouts of the keypad byte colPins[COLS] = {4, 3, 2}; 
//connect to the column pinouts of the keypad Keypad keypad = Keypad( makeKeymap(keys), rowPins, colPins, ROWS, COLS ); 

This will swap the * and # keys and also let you connect to the Arduino to match this image
