LED strip testing with Bus Pirate

Drew tested out some addressable RGB LEDs he bought during Hacker Camp, using a Bus Pirate.    Via Shenzhen_hacker_hole WeChat group.

The LDP6803 uses SPI for communication. A power supply and a Bus Pirate and I was able to change colors without code. The chip uses a 7bit encoding of colors so setting individual colors can’t really be done without code.
