Arcadia 2001 controllers for Intellivision 1

Recommended Posts

Arcadia 2001 controllers are removable just like intellivision 1, if you remove the casing. it has 11 pins instead of 9. if I acquire one i'll try to connect it. If it works on intellivision 1, then this nice looking controller will also work. it is the same system.

You can see how the arcadia 2001 controller works here.

And the intellivision controller here.

Although the construction is similar, their signals are very different. The intellivision keypad sends two signals for each button press, while the arcadia 2001 alternates scanning one signal (column or row). The arcadia 2001 action buttons are the same as keypad 2.

Something I've always wondered. Thanks for bringing this up.
