N00b question about wiring Seimitsu buttons


#1

I searched for about 2 hours and still haven’t found answer…

I’m about to wire my Seimitsu buttons and joystick to a Cthulhu. When I bought my buttons, I was told to make sure I know which one is the ground switch. How do I know which one is ground? And when I’m wiring, do I follow this?


#2

It does not matter which Contact on Button is Ground or Signal.


#3

Really? The guy told me if I got it mixed up, I’ll fry my PCB…


#4

you’ll be fine…it’s just completing the circuit.


#5

Yes, really.
Maybe the guy is talking something else.

For Buttons, it does not matter.


#6

with the cthulhu you dont even need to use that barrier strip. you would still need to daisy chain the grounds tho.

Thanks guys! I wired/soldered everything and it works like a charm! I ran out of wire so I didn’t wire up the Home button…everything else works!

Thanks again!
