LED strip testing with Bus Pirate

Posted on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 in Bus Pirate by DP

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.

 

Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors.
