Hi,

Reading this thread, did anyone actually figure out why does the transistor cause erroneous / glitched readings?

Of course I could order the known-and-confirmed adapters (or put in some NC7ST04...).

My guess is commutation speed. The transistor might switch fast with:

  • A capacitor (100..400pf) in parallel with the base resistor _/--
  • A 10k resistor from base to emitter to drain the current faster --\_
  • Reduce the resistor in collector to get in the (470..1k)Ohm range --\_

Of course that would elevate the component count, and that's why I think joymega adapter builders prefer to use the integrated circuit.

The NC7ST04 is an excellent choice. The JoyMega2 is made with this chip and is very compact. I tested it and it works like a charm.
