DimBlue – USB controllable 16 channel light dimmer

Posted on Monday, September 17th, 2012 in ARM, project logs by DP

Matseng designed DimBlue, an ATmega32u4 based USB controllable 16 channel light dimmer. Triacs which dim the lights are optoisolated from mains to provide protection from high voltages. The board is powered from mains voltage, via a PCB mounted transformer.

As an added bonus, the board has a footprint for a serial Bluetooth module, giving it the possibility of wireless control.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
