    Hi, I am doing a project interfacing between 3 axis Joystick and PIC such that the Joystick can be use to control 3 servo motors in 3 axes.

    Problem face:
    1. Joystick I would like to use is Logitech Extreme 3d (only choice i can get at my place). But I cant get the datasheet and enumeration table of the Joystick output.

    2. Need circuit simulator that can support USB host microcontroller.Could not find any.

    To get enumeration data is easy. You can use USB sniffer, such as SnoopyPro. It will capture the data exchanged between the joystick and PC, including the enumeration data.

    A more difficult problem is implementing the driver needed to receive the data and interpret it at the microcontroller. I presume you are using a PIC that has USB host capability? PIC18 will not work as a host.

    Hi,n9352527,thanks for your advice.
    Ya, the microcontroller i am going to use is probably pic24FJXXXGBXX or PIC32 which can use as USB HOST. However, I need a circuit simulator software that support PIC24FJ and above. Proteus cannot support the PIC. Any ideas?

    Sorry, no. I've never done simulations for microcontrollers.
