What is Hall Effect?

 In a standard analog stick, the angle, direction, and speed are all measured using potentiometers.  These are very small mechanical units with moving parts that can send the data to the controller's circuitry and provide the appropriate inputs in-game.  While these are currently the standard for most analog sticks, even outside of gaming, they do suffer from wear and tear as well as drifting.  Drifting is when the analog stick output becomes less precise over time causing it to "drift" away from its intended target.  The reasons for this could be a faulty potentiometer, a dirty stick, or just natural wear-and-tear.


This analog stick comes equipped with Hall Effect sensors which utilize electromagnetic density to measure the output through the resistance level of the circuit.  Basically, this means that rather than using a mechanical potentiometer, it instead uses electromagnetism to produce the same effect without needing small parts to move around.  As such, the performance is much more consistent and with good care, can outlast most standard analog sticks.  You won't encounter the same issues that can lead to stick drift with Hall Effect sensors.
