Joystick Potentiometer In Video Game Replacement Parts
It’s easy to mount a PSP/Xbox-like thumb joystick with our kailh joystick potentiometer.
The thumb stick is an analog joystick - more accurate and sensitive than just 'directional' joysticks - with a 'press in to select' button.
you can put the a soft-touch rubber 'hat' on the joystick.
Since it's analog, you'll need two analog reading pins on your microcontroller to determine X and Y. Having an extra digital input will let you read the switch.
