I have a question for those that are smarter than I am regarding a project I am working on. I am going to make a CNC control panel using a circuit board out of a USB keyboard. Some of the shorcuts are 2-key combos. I plan to use dpst pushbuttons. For example, for "shift-a" I would have "shift" hooked up to one half of the DPST and "a" hooked up to the other half. Since the shortcuts require the keystrokes to come in the right order, for example "shift" then "a", I would have to delay the "a" keystroke somehow on the dpst to insure that "shift" goes first. I'm an electronics amateur and was thinking a small capacitor may do the trick, but if any of you more knowledgeable folks can tell me if there is a proper way to do it I would appreciate it. Hopefully a single component on each switch can do it since I have many to do this way.
Thanks in advance.
