Note: purple PCBs shown in photos are during development. Final blue PCBs switched the “B3” and “B4” pin positions.

Install Buttons on Gamepad PCBs

Let's start by setting up our buttons. Insert each button on the side of the PCB with the "BUTTON PAD" writing. Make sure the orientation of the legs on the buttons are positioned with the pins. Push them into the holes so they're all the way in, flush with the surface of the PCB.

Solder Buttons to Gamepad

Flip the PCB over and secure it to a Panavise Jr. or Helping Third Hands. Then, add solder to all of the pins.

Repeat this proceedure for the second gamepad PCB.
