Joystick Shield PCB

1.85 €1.85

Availability: Retired

The Joystick Shield sits on top of your Arduino and turns it into a simple controller. Five momentary push buttons (4+ joystick select button) and a two-axis thumb joystick gives your Arduino functionality on the level of old Nintendo controllers.

Please note: This is an older version of the PCB that does not have the prototyping area. The examples and assembly guides still apply. We're just trying to give these PCBs a happy home before we move on to the next revision.

The momentary push buttons are connected to Arduino digital pins 2-6; when pressed they will pull the pin low (utilizing the internal pull-ups of the Arduino). Vertical movement of the joystick will produce a proportional analog voltage on analog pin 0, likewise, horizontal movement of the joystick can be tracked on analog pin 1.

This product is only the Joystick Shield PCB - you'll need to purchase the buttons and joystick separately, and assemble the controller yourself. Here's what you'll need in addition to the shield:

  • 4 x Momentary Push Button Switch - 12mm Square
  • 1 x Thumb Joystick
  • 1 x Mini Push Button Switch (breaks out Arduino's reset switch)
  • 2 x 6-pin Arduino Stackable Header
  • 2 x 8-pin Arduino Stackable Header
