254 Series Micro-stick™ Controller

254 Series Micro-stick™ Controller

CTS Electrocomponents and Digi-Key introduce compact controller with optional momentary switch for consumer applications

Stick controllers are a popular means of achieving precise movement control in hand held electronics such as gaming, presenter and remote control applications. Miniaturization and additional features have been driving market forces in hand held electronics. Based on this demand, CTS Electrocomponents has developed the 254 series Micro-stick™ controller that measures just one-fourth the size of traditional stick controllers. The 254 provides the same precision as earlier versions of stick controllers and frees up valuable circuit board space.

Through miniaturization, the 254 opens up additional applications such as smart phones, pocket PCs, GPS and PDAs where larger stick controllers are impractical.

Features
  • Exceptionally small mini-joystick size (11 mm x 11 mm x 5 mm)
  • Long Life 1 Million Cycles
  • Provides excellent electrical accuracy through patented mechanism
  • Optional momentary switch is operational at all positions
RoHS Compliant
