What is Key bouncing?

  Shared By: Amelia Schmidt    Date: May 10    Category: Assembly Language    Views: 6464

Answer:

Mechanical switches are used as keys in most of the keyboards. When a key is pressed the contact bounce back and forth and settle down only after a small time delay (about 20ms). Even though a key is actuated once, it will appear to have been actuated several times. This problem is called Key Bouncing.
