Here's one for connecting a PS/2 keyboard to an Apple II+ (ASCII
parallel) using an ATMEGA microcontroller:

For those of us that don't speak German, here's the discussion that lead
up to it:

Vince Briel uses a similar design in his Replica I, also an ATMEGA design:

If you can't program your own chip, I'm sure Vince would be willing to
sell you one. I'm not sure how Vince's design handles lowercase, it
being intended for the Apple I, but he could certainly tell you.
