Description: Sometimes you need a very small directional input device (world's smallest game controller, anyone?) This 5-way tactile switch (up, down, left, right, and center click) allows for joystick-like control in a very small package. This breadboard-friendly board breaks out all the switch signals, and includes pullup resistors configured so that the outputs read low when pressed, and high otherwise. (If you wish, you can reverse the power leads for pull-down operation.)

This version has correct labels for the headers.

  • Hooray for correct labels!;)

  • Is there a button top/knob that will fit on this? It would make it much nicer when mounted in a project box.

    • Sadly we haven’t found anything that fits the top, and we’ve looked. A dot of Sugru works well. If you’re into 3D printing, you might be able to make something. If you find anything let us know!

  • Possable incressed sales with slight change…

    There is a programable display device from 4D systems that suports this 5-way Sw directly by using an IO pin into it’s A-D converter. (see page 6)

    If you replace R1-22k, R2-1.2k, R3-10k, R4-4.7k, and R5-2.2k, It should be compatable with there unit. I do like the 4 mounting holes for support on your PCB. BTW… Would there possably be a top cap for this switch.??

    • In terms of those SMT resistors… is there a size code available, or are the pads large enough and the gap small enough to accommodate most 1/8-1/4W packages?

  • No more dead puppies!!
