NEW PRODUCT – Thru-hole 5-way Navigation switch. This navigation switch is an intuitive way to add 5 button’s worth of interfacing with a single component. Inside is 5 switches: left, right, up, down and ‘select’ (pressing down), all with a common ground pin. The package isn’t exactly on a 0.1″ grid, but we found that you can push it into a breadboard with a little bending and it snaps in nicely.

In stock and shipping now!

  1. omg, this switch is great

  2. Very interesting! Could make for a great UI for a LCD. What kind of cap can you put on this?
