In this guide, we'll learn how to wire up a Mini Analog Joystick to the Adafruit Arcade Bonnet for Raspberry Pi. Most of the arcade buttons plug into the Arcade Bonnet with quick connect wires – Making it much easier to put together a retro arcade controller or cabinet.
This cute little bonnet is designed for quickly adding arcade buttons to your Raspberry Pi. It has six JST connectors that are compatible with our arcade button quick connect wires, so no soldering required. There's also dedicated pins for wiring up an analog joystick and an 8-way switch joystick.
I suggest walking through the following guides linked below to get familiar with the components. If your new to soldering and electronics, these guides will help you get started!
A nice handful of parts and components used to build this project. Always a good idea to have more on hand in case something is damaged or burns out!
These things really do help make building the project smoothly. You don't need them all of them, but I recommend them.
