The Micro Joystick Hardware Development Kit (HDK) is the perfect tool to evaluate this unique 4-zone mouse pointing solution. This HDK provides all the necessary components to understand and evaluate this robust joystick mousing solution. The high-precision Micro Joystick solution is an innovative, intuitive, OEM pointing system that delivers simultaneous 360-degree control of direction and speed at the touch of a fingertip. The Micro Joystick solution includes the joystick component and a microcontroller with proprietary measurement firmware. It is ideal for integration into notebook computers, remote controls, games, ruggedized products and other portable products where space is limited. The dynamic response of FSR technology enables the lightest of touches to be translated into smooth, intuitive cursor control, while simultaneously enabling dynamic speed control by altering the amount of applied pressure. The result is smooth cursor movement in any direction, from a precise crawl to a screen-crossing zip. Micro Joystick is based on Interlink Electronics' pressure-sensitive Force Sensing Resistor® (FSR®). The standard Micro Joystick system is a component-level solution consisting of a joystick, a micro-controller, and a rubber cap.
The Hardware Development Kit includes a fully functioning demo module which can be easily connected to a PC for evaluation. It also contains additional sensors and programmed micro-controllers as well as full product integration documentation.
