 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I had a USB logitech controller (unsure of model, its probably 10 years old or so) that I took the 2 small vibration motors out of and have been trying to figure out: 1. How to connect it to my Arduino Uno. I've searched and searched but I can't seem to find anything that fits my exact criteria. And 2. How to code it after I've figured out the first part. Any input is appreciated. I really have no goal with this project, just messin around with different components.

Your going to need more then just your Arduino. Personally, I have had really good luck with spark fun's motor driver and I keep a few around for testing. You might also like that they come with some sample code...

If they are the same as in a DualShock controller they will be designed for 7.2V, as that's the
vibration motor supply voltage specification.
