Hacking the Playstation PS1 Controller

Recently I was looking at using the PS1 controller as a means to control various other things. This came to mind as I was looking particularly at controlling a stepper motor. Having searched google a little I discovered that there were a few references to doing this.

Cutting the cable you will discover that there are 9 coloured cables within. These are defined as follows;

No Colour Description
1 Brown Data
2 Orange Command
3 Purple N/C
4 Black GND
5 Red Vcc
6 Yellow Att
7 Blue Clock
8 N/C
9 Green ACK
