Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t have too many LED’s
I found a few more cables…
Video shows (bit rough) that each LED output has 256 levels of brightness.
@ Architect - Thanks.
Now I just need to convince every Gadgeteer user they would be lost without one in their toolbox
That looks great! I guess it’s time to place another order!
Got that store up yet?
You must be having a laugh…
It’s getting closer to the top of the todo list…honest…
Make them red and you either have KITT or the Centurion Cylon. lol
How many can be chained together? How much? Are they for sale yet?
@ ianlee74 -
- Chain s many as you want…
- $11.95 without headers $14.95 with headers soldered on
- I have a few ready…
I suppose i should also mention that each bank of 18 outputs can be set to 10ma or 20ma max current via pin headers.
Buy a few and the price goes down…
That idea has been suggested by someone else today
It would be really cool if external power could be applied. Then you’d have a one-stop LED cube module. This would still need to be used in conjunction with transistors to power an LED array
I see a white connector there. I assume it is to connect an external power source.
Yes, but is that supplying the LED directly or the chips? It sounds like there may be a 20mA limit coming from the chip for each pin. So, for an LED cube you would be limited to only lighting one LED per pin at a time. It appears to be fast enough for that to work fine but you lose intensity.
@ ianlee74 - white connector is just for the LEDs, ic’s are powered off the socket.
Each output can sink up to 30ma but I have chosen 20 and 10ma each.
Can change resistors to 30ma if needed.
So you can draw 54 x 20ma per driver at once to keep the room warm
Just light them all up at once…
Juzzy, can you add your modules to http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=Community_Offers when you get a chance? I can’t keep track of them all
Yes, please. Particularly until you get that website done.
I’m not ordering anything else from Justin (aka Juzzy) until he either gets his store up or lists the items on the community offers page.
Fellas, can I get a +1???
I only ask so I can figure out how much money I need to set aside for gadget funds this month
@ Brett - add a few more $$'s as I have a few more ready
Yes the site is coming…
Also about to start plotting with SteveP to get him to cover the other side of the big ditch.
