A gaming keyboard consists of two parts: a set of keys that are pressed in sequence by the user, and an encoder that identifies each key pressed and generates a code that uniquely identifies that key. The key set includes the standard alphanumeric keys from older typewriters and additional keys, such as cursor keys, navigation and function keys, Apple or Windows keys, and a numeric keypad.

THE ENCODER OF A KEYBOARD
The encoder is a microprocessor located in the gaming keyboard that detects each key as it is pressed and released. To do this, the encoder maintains a set of signals in a grid of intersecting rows and columns. When the user presses a key, a connection is established in the network. If, for example, the connection is in the first row and in the third column, the encoder immediately identifies the key pressed and sends a special signal to the PC, called a “scan code”. The PC translates the scan code into the appropriate binary code and displays the character on the monitor so that the user can verify that the correct key has been pressed.
Gaming keyboard lights (for caps, numbers, scrolling, etc.) are controlled from the PC, not the gaming keyboard. For example, when the user presses the Caps Lock key, the keyboard encoder sends the Caps Lock key code to the PC; and the PC turned on the light of the gamer keyboard.
An accessory that incorporates the term game in its name is any product whose internal components and functionality are dedicated to provide certain functions to users, in order to enhance and facilitate their gaming experience. Of course, it is not. only to have an aggressive and whimsical design, or to incorporate LED backlighting. These devices have specific functions, a software configuration and a specific set of keys, which allow the user to adapt them according to their own preferences.
