Pro Micro Question

Post by KonnorJ » Thu Sep 06, 2018 2:50 pm

Anyone have experince with arduino pro micros and analogue sticks?
I need to know if i can connect 5v and gnd of the stick too my usual powerstrip or does it need too go too vcc and gnd of the arduino? And can the gnds be shared between analog and digital inputs?

Yes you can wire the analog joystick to your 5v powerstrip. Ground is common throughout so anywhere is fine. VCC on the pro micro is 5v as well if your powering it through the usb connector.
