nRF24L01 for wireless Gamepad / Joystick

Submitted by Violet on Fri, 06/19/2020 - 09:42

Hey guys, 

I was wondering if I can use nRF24L01 to convert my normal joystick into a wireless joystick? How to make the receiver work like a HID devicce and what commands should i give for the respective gamepad buttons? Any referance links will be appriciated...

Also i do not want to use arduino as HID device, so what are my other alternatives?  I wonder what IC is used in a HID mouse receiver !!

if you don't want to use an Arduino then you have to use a microcontroller like ARM STM32F103, then interface the NRF module with it. 

it's just an idea take it with a grain of salt.

It is possible, but there you will either have to re-solder the board, because the usual joystick was not programmed for wireless use, or it really messes with the arduino. But it seems to me that the cheapest way is not to invent a bicycle, but to buy a wireless joystick
