A point-of-sale (POS) system is a computerized replacement for a cash register. This system has the ability to record and process customer orders, process credit and debit card swipes, and manage inventory. Generally, a POS system has a personal computer as its core which is provided with specialized I/O devices and application specific programs. At the POS, merchants calculate the amount of purchase by the customers and prepare invoices. It is the point where customers make payments for the goods they have purchased. After the payment is completed, customers are issued printed receipts of the transaction. A wide variety of tools such as cash registers, barcode scanners, and electronic card readers are used by retailers to process POS transactions. The POS market requires long lasting keyboard solutions, which occupy minimum space and go beyond traditional PC keyboards. POS keyboards are specialized to meet the requirements of POS systems. To maximize functionality, these keyboards have specialized buttons, programmable keys, embedded credit card swipe readers, smart card readers, MICR check readers, biometric (fingerprint scanner) security, and other devices. Various design considerations such as the features to integrate, keyboard reliability, key top design, key programming, and ergonomics are considered while designing POS keyboards. Space is at a premium in POS environment, and this mandates POS keyboards to be compact in size.
