Freebase

  1. D-pad

    A D-pad is a flat, usually thumb-operated directional control with one button on each point, found on nearly all modern video game console gamepads, game controllers, on the remote control units of some television and DVD players, and smart phones. Like early video game joysticks, the vast majority of D-pads are digital; in other words, only the directions provided on the D-pad buttons can be used, with no intermediate values. However, combinations of two directions do provide diagonals and many modern D-pads can be used to provide eight-directional input if appropriate. Although digital D-pads offer less flexibility than analog sticks, they can easily be manipulated with very high accuracy. They are also far less demanding in maintenance and do not protrude very far from the controller, making them ideal for portable consoles such as the Game Boy and the PSP. D-pads such as the ones found on the DualShock 2 and 3 have been developed to measure analog levels of pressure on each of the directional buttons. D-pads have appeared on other kinds of electronic equipment, including A/V remote controls, calculators, PDAs, smartphones, and car stereos such as the AutoPC.
