All has been said already, but as someone making keyboard encoders for a 
living I can't simply shut up. This chip is relict of the past, and 
although it's possible to hook it up to regular Fatar keyboard with a 
bit of glue logic (quite a big bit), it's probably easier to do it with 
any kind of microcontroller. There are a few ready to use solutions, 
like the ucapps you mentioned later, or others with no programming needed.
