The arcade stick is done!!!!!
1. Controller reads the inputs from the joystick and the push buttons
2. Controller sends this information to the PC via serial communication
(well... using ftdi so virtual serial communication...)
3. The PC-side receiver translates this information into other useful instructions for the PC
I am using PIC 16F876a microcontroller as the controller
and a software written in MATLAB as the receiver.
