New module - Ring 1206 v1.0


#1

Don’t have stencil yet, so made just one (white).


#2

reminds me of the song “Ring of fire”. Which can be taken two ways, the flames type of fire and the day after the hot chilli eating contest.


#3

With the amount if chili my wife cooks with every day, that’s a daily occurrence for me :slight_smile:

Back on topic.

Are each of the LED’s controllable or all switched on at the same time?


#4

@ Dave McLaughlin - Yes, you can control each led individually and with 32 of them you can do really cool effects. I will post a video demo.


#5

I this the module where the creepy long haired girl climbs out of? :think:


#6

@ Reinhard Ostermeier - No, that is another one - Ringu v666
:open_mouth:


#7

Nice one. It would be even more use full if the center were hollowed out.


#8

@ ianlee74 - Hard to arrange components on the back side. Maybe on the next version.


#9

This looks great :slight_smile:

Ive almost finished an RGB LED ring module design.


#10

Nice, is that 80 mm? 8x8 cm?


#11

Yep, i wanted to make it big enough to get an SLR camera lens through :wink:
Edit: well a 50mm at least. at the moment the outer ring where the sockets sits leaves a load of space. Looking at putting the sockets on the back or putting more leds on and external power.


#12

@ HughB - Thats what I thought! :smiley:


#13

im nothing if not predictable :D.
I may have to externally power this anyway as at full brightness the mainboard wont give enough Juice.


#14

Looks, like the sockets are already on the back side. I would trim the ring and extend just around the mounting holes and will stick power connector on one of these extended areas.

@ ianlee74 - HughB’s design looks like it’s using the newer 4 pin WS rather than the 6 pin that Adafruit is using so HughB wins :smiley:


#17

@ Bill Gates - Yep,WS2812B, and Hugh has more of them :wink:

#19

@ Bill Gates - So, how is that condom project going on? :smiley:
