2009-07-07 05:05:42rev. 2CORRECTIt is correct. The same information can be found here: http://www.raphnet.net/electronique/psx_adaptor/psx_adaptor_en.phpAPPROVED
2010-11-18 00:05:28rev. 5CORRECTNo errors, but what commands are needed to send vibrations? Or should I just power pin 3? Could you include a picture of the controller interface, or the pin layout? I can help with image editing.APPROVED
2011-12-04 12:19:05rev. 6CORRECTnope, all seems good to meAPPROVED
2013-03-12 19:59:57rev. 6CORRECTIt is an acurate documentAPPROVED

2016-03-11 09:18:37rev. 6CORRECTThis data is all accurate. I debugged an Arduino library using this information: ( https://github.com/wootfish/Psx ) and there were no problems at all. Very good and detailed.APPROVED

2017-12-17 13:45:26rev. 7CORRECTNo errors that I noticed. I wrote a python class to control a psx controller by jumping the pins to a raspberry pi. The information on this page is correct I can successfully read information from the controller. I needed to add a pullup resistor to the data line. I haven't tested pin 3 though, or NegCon, or analogue mode green LED. Also, this document doesn't say anything about clock speed for communications - it worked at about 7kHz. (This is as fast as I could run it using a python script).APPROVED
