Wireless DDR Pad for the PS3
Wireless DDR Pad for the PS3

A friend needed help hooking up his PS3 USB DDR pad to his PS3 while it was emulating a PS2 game.

The original pad used a USB connection, but was not a ‘Sony blessed’ interface. The first step was to acquire a PS3 controller to sacrifice. We removed the plastic shell and plastic interface board, then I cooked up the following PCB to interface with it:

Design files: PCB, Silkscreen

Next, we cracked the USB Pad, removed some extraneous plastic and circuitry, and attached our “controller-within-a-controller”:
