Rough draft: 48 channel networked LED controller

Here’s a new project we’d like to develop openly, like the recent logic analyzer board . This rough sketch shows a 48 channel LED controller with an ethernet interface. Our primary goals are: 48 channels of 10bit PWM LED control Ethernet interface Up to 120mA of LEDs per channel The networked LED controller would use […]

Remote control color changing pumpkin

Button 9 activates an ‘angry pumpkin’ mode that flashes a scary red strobe for a few seconds. It uses a minimal PIC 18F2550 […]
