How Gamepads Work?

Every gamepad controller has a similar layout and buttons. The controller
is shaped like a wing with convenient button placement. As the structure
is identical, we will explain how a gamepad controller works:

  • There are different variants of a gamepad, like analog sticks and
    joysticks, which come with various features for playing various
    console games like sports, first-person shooting, role-playing, etc.
    But, one thing that all gamepads have in common is the buttons.
  • Every button has a metal piece underneath it. These buttons send
    signals to the PC or the mobile, and the computer sends the message to
    the game software.
  • Most modern gamepads with Bluetooth connections use infrared to
    transmit data.
  • Joysticks move and aim differently than buttons. Joysticks have
    right-angled potentiometers. Potentiometers flow current, but the
    resistance determines the current. Tilting or pressing the joystick
    increases or decreases resistance. The controller sends the angle to
    the console, which displays the direction.
  • The rumble feature on all modern gamepads with motion control and
    vibration allows games to transmit signals to the controller, causing
    it to vibrate, improving feedback in games like racing
    simulators.
  • Gamepads use accelerometers and miniature chips with built-in springs
    to hold wafers in place. Wafer movement follows controller movement.
    The accelerometer measures how each wafer moves relative to the others
    and the controller, and the system syncs them.
