Adding wired or wireless remote control to Arduino main boards become easy with Cytron Arduino PS2 Shield together with Arduino Library provided. Cytron PS2 Shield (SHIELD-PS2) is an Arduino compatible shield which is compatible with Arduino UNO, Arduino Duemilanove, Arduino Mega, Arduino Leonardo and possibly another pin compatible mainboards.
Cytron PS2 Shield offers a compact yet reliable PS2 Controller Converter for the user. Cytron PS2 Shield is powered by Arduino main board. with Cytron PS2 Shield Reading Joy-stick and button’s state of the PS2 controller will be as easy as reading UART data. It offers a standard connector for SONY PS2 controller plug-in, either wired or wireless.
Shield-PS2 has stackable side headers which allow for more Arduino shields to be stacked on top of it. Besides, the user has the option to use either hardware or software UART with Arduino’s main board of communication to get the PS2 controller status.
Shield-PS2 reset is connected to Arduino‘s analog pin 1 (A1). The user can pull down this analog pin to reset the shield.
