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.
