Ok, so if you want a sixaxis adapter like TOMORROW you can make your own! It should cost less than $15 CDN and best of all there’s no wait.
First you’ll need to disassemble your sisaxis. There is a great guide HERE detailing just that.
Now you need to order these parts from Digi-key. Note this is the Canadian digi-key so if your in the US go to the US site.
1x Part Number 609-1835-ND You can order more of these since they’re so cheap just in case you mess one up.
1x Part Number HF20U-02-ND
2x 7.5k ohm Resistors that can handle at least 1/8 watt. You can order them from digi-key, part number CMF7.50KQFTR-ND, for less than a dollar or scrounge up some of your own.
You’ll need the following tools:
15/30 watt soldering iron
Lead free Solder
Wire - I used old floppy IDE cable
That’s it four measly parts. Digi-key uses UPS to ship things and I received mine the next business day!
This is the FFC cable we need so we don’t mess up the sixaxis PCB by soldering directly on to it. Note the orientation of the FFC cable, it’s facing label side down.
Here is the FFC connector we’ll be soldering on. Note that the contact pins are on the BOTTOM of the connector.
Here is an overview and pin assignments for for what we have to do.
BE SURE THAT THE BATTERY IS REMOVED FROM THE SIXAXIS WHEN YOU ATTEMPT THIS!
Step 1) Solder wire to each contact on the FFC connector. Make sure the soldering iron is nice and hot and be sure not to accidentally connect two pins together. Remember that soldering should only be done in a well ventilated area. You can separate the top and bottom rows with some aluminum foil so you don’t accidentally drop solder on the bottom row.
Step 2) Add the resistors to the connector using the pin assignment picture above. You can simply solder the resistor straight on to the connector, or use some additional wire and solder it farther away like in the picture above.
Step 3) Insert the FFC cable in to the sixaxis label side down
Step 4) Insert the FFC cable in to your shiny new FFC connector where the pins on the FFC connector are on the BOTTOM side.
Step 5) Test to make sure all your contacts are good by using a multimeter on either side of the FFC cable ie: on the sixaxis PCB and the wire you soldered on. If your confident that none of your wires and pins are not accidentally touching you can just put the battery back in to the sixaxis, and short the signal lines with the appropriate ground to test the buttons with the PS3. Now would be a good time to label your wires as well.
ex: with the battery connected to the sixaxis short the PS button with the PS ground to turn on the ps3
If all your wiring is good then your all done! If not, you need to whip out the multimeter and check for the loose connection.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU MESS SOMETHING UP
Props to slagcoin for the pinout.
