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.

There is one major downfall. Where to find a button? Using analogRead(), a switch case, and different resistor values could have used one pin to read all 5 switches. Still glad to have a 5 way tactile switch on a board to tinker with on the breadboard.
