Ultra-Miniature Joystick


What is a MiniStick™?

Two axis, Ministick™ controller with optional momentary switch features a compact size with long 1,000,000 cycle life. It is most commonly used to in gaming applications for joystick and thumb-stick control. The high reliability and accuracy of CTS' Ministicks™ makes it the choice of many gaming platform designers who demand excellence in gaming controllers.

CTS' patented 252 and 254 Ministick™ controllers have two distinct designs that provide the greatest level of design flexibility in the industry. The 252 Mini-joystick (20x21x13mm) conforms to typical two axis controller size constraints with superior performance. The ultra miniature 254 Mini-joystick (11x11x5mm) provides an even smaller package size while retaining the design options and superior performance you expect from CTS.
