Circuit Diagram

This provides a visual reference for wiring of the components. They aren't true to scale, just meant to be used as reference. This diagrams was created using the Fritzing software package.

Take a moment to review the components in the circuit diagram. This illustration is meant for referencing wired connections - The length of wire, position and size of components are not exact.

We measured and cut all wires to 120mm long. This will allow the wires to reach from the female headers to the rotary encoder on the opposite side of the board.

Use silicone wire to make them easier to coil and manage. 

We can use right angled headers to solder to the wires or DIY your own by bending headers  90 degrees.  

  • Pin 9 connects to the B pin (Green wire)
  • Pin 6 connects to the A pin (Blue wire)
  • Pin 5 connects to the Switch pin (Yellow wire)

Ground

We used a short wire to connect one Ground to the other (Grey wires) and then added another Ground connection to the GND female header on the PyGamer.
