This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: BOB-11187

Replacement: BOB-11187. The new revision fixes the label error. This page is for reference only.
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.)
Note: Oops! we screwed up, the L and R labels are reversed. Everything works fine though, and we'll fix the labeling on the next revision.
