Features and Benefits
Intuitive control
Smooth cursor movement
Low power usage
Compact design
The high-precision MicroJoystick is an innovative, intuitive, OEM pointing system that
delivers simultaneous 360º control of direction and speed at the touch of a fingertip.
It is based on Interlink Electronics’ patented pressure-sensitive Force Sensing
Resistor® (FSR®) technology. The dynamic response for FSR® technology enables
the lightest of touches to be translated into smooth, intuitive cursor control while
simultaneously enabling dynamic speed control by altering the amount of applied
pressure. The result is smooth cursor movement in any direction, from a precise crawl
to a screen-crossing zip. Call us for more information 805-484-8855
