Pointing devices come in a wide variety. The once dominating opto-mechanical shutter wheel mechanism is now just one sensor option among many.

The MouseWarrior family of pointing device controllers covers several pointing technologies and supports USB which is the dominating interface today.

Currently there are standard off the shelf MouseWarrior chips to support classic opto-mechanical devices, analog signal sensors, and directional switches. Some of them are hybrid controllers which can switch between mouse and joystick mode.
