The python based thumbstick.py demo allows you to read a MikroElektronika Thumbstick Click board on a Raspberry PI using the GPIO and SPI inputs via a Pi Click Shield. The Thumbstick Click board uses an SPI based MCP3204 module for reading the joystick axes and the joystick "center click" button is read using the GPIO input 17 on the Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi and Thumbstick Click Board

Raspberry Pi and Thumbstick Click Board

The Thumbstick Click board is connected to a Raspberry Pi using the MikroE Pi Click Shield. This shield connects to the Raspberry PI GPIO header pins and lets you attach MikroBus format (http://www.mikroe.com/mikrobus/) Click boards.
