  • A more creative application I’ve seen is from a fellow who is heavily into modifying joysticks for video game systems and he sells a custom pcb with snap clips that hold this particular joystick’s pcb in place and the pogo pins are positioned to cup the solder points of the signals you would need to tap into and piggy back the signals to a pcb for a different game console. I’m sure some of you are familiar with this practice referred to as dual modding. Essentially it is making a joystick that only works on one console (ie xbox 360) capable of functioning on multiple consoles (add playstation 3 support). So you get about 20 signals tapped into via pogo pins and on the other end of the board isan IDE ribbon cable output that would carry each signal.
