Description: This is the same product as the Joystick Shield Kit. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap.

The Joystick Shield kit contains all the parts you need to enable your Arduino with a joystick! The 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. Soldering is required, but it’s relatively easy and requires minimal tools. We even have a step by step guide!

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 the entire kit and contains the following items:

  • it seems that this pcb has a little prototyping area which the unpackaged version doesnt have.
    is this a new revision to the shield?

    • Hi,
      Thanks for pointing this out, it looks like we need a photo update for that product. This is the new revision, but if you order DEV-09760 it will include the new version as well.
      Thanks,
      Tim
