ThumbStick Click Board, mikroE
ThumbStick Click Board, mikroE

Thumbstick click is a quality input board that makes it easy for the users to add a high precision analog thumb joystick to their design. This click board features a MCP3204 12-bit A/D converter. It also has got a pushbutton enabled joystick with dual axis and spring return. This joystick is quite similar to the ones used on joypads on popular gaming consoles like PS2 and Xbox controllers. Thumbstick click has typical life span of 100,000 cycles. With the help of two potentiometers connected to a stick, directional input gets received in the x and y axes of the joystick unit. An interrupt signal to the target board microcontroller is sent by the mechanical pushbutton. The MCP3204 12-bit A/D converter then converts the analog signal to digital. To output this digital signal to the target board, Thumbstick click makes use of mikroBUS SPI (CS, SCK, MISO and MOSI) lines.

Thumbstick click Input device is suitable for fine control of graphical user interfaces and remote control operated video games, since it facilitates 360 degree directional movement.

MCP3204 12-bit A/D converter

The MCP3204 is a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) that is equipped with a successive approximation register (SAR) architecture and an industry-standard SPI serial interface. It allows 12-bit ADC capability to be added to any PICmicro microcontroller. The MCP3204 features 100k samples/second, 4 input channels, low power consumption (5nA typical standby, 400 µA max. active). It is available in 14-pin PDIP, SOIC and TSSOP packages. Ideal for embedded control applications, MCP3204 12-bit A/D converter combines high performance and low power consumption in a small package. It is great for use in applications that include home medical appliances, multi-channel data loggers, industrial PCs, industrial automation, smart sensors, portable instrumentation, and robotics.

Power Supply

Thumbstick click utilises either a 3.3V or a 5V power supply. The on-board single SMD jumper (zero-ohm resistor) J1, which regulates the power supply, is by default soldered to the 3.3V position.
