    I'm new to circuitry, and was wondering if you guys could help me figure this one out.

    I want to create a rapid-fire 360 controller from scratch, with the ability to increase/decrease the rate of fire using existing components of the 360 controller. (So I don't want to cut any holes in it for extra buttons, etc)

    From my understanding, there are many mod chips that already do this, but as a project I don't want to just buy a premade chip and stick it on there.

    For reference, a couple of chips I know about are: Intensafire 3.0, Ragnarok, and Arbiter 3. I linked the names to a picture of each chip. (The Arbiter and Intensafire seem to be exact same thing.)

    Like I said I am completely new to circuitry, but I have soldered a little before, and have taken a couple of engineering classes so I'm not completely devoid of information on the subject.

    Mainly I'm wondering what types of components will I need, and also wondering how could I produce the RoF changing? I think I would need some type of memory chip or something, but this is about where my know-how falls out.
