I’m a mechanical engineer by trade, not a electrical engineer and I’m hoping the answer to my question has an easy answer:
Is there a micro switch out there that can be used in an arcade joystick that self (automatically) truncates (cuts off) the signal as quickly as possible. Maybe as quickly as 1ms or if not, how fast then? If this type of switch does not exist, is there a device that I can add to the switch circuit that can do this for me?
Why would I want to do this? I want to be able to press the same button again as quickly as possible without actually releasing the button. If the signal is cut off automatically for me, I can register the same move again with another switch. Hopefully you can see where I’m going with this.
Please let me know if you have any ideas, any input is very much appreciated.
