3 Peg In Place Of 4 Peg

Nope and maybe.

You can try wiring one up past the conversion IC (using a 2.8v source for the POT VCC) and go straight to the MCU lines for LSX, LSY, RSX and RSY. All that IC does is convert the current changes of the  4 leg Hall sensor type to a Voltage that the MCU can measure, so in theory it should work. I've never tried it, don't have how/where to wire it documented and as there are several versions of PS3 controllers I've no plans to. Plus the fact that IC does a bit more than just that conversion on the later version boards messing around with it could mess something else up.

Starting to see yet why having one of these made up costs a lot? wink.gif
