Joystick Shield PCB
4 in stock
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.
The momentary push buttons are connected to Arduino digital pins 2-6; when pressed they will pull the pin low. 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:
4x Momentary Push Button Switch – 12mm Square
1x Thumb Joystick
1x Mini Push Button Switch (breaks out Arduino's reset switch)
2x 6-pin Arduino Stackable Header
2x 8-pin Arduino Stackable Header
