New Product! The RGB LED Arduino Shield - by Matt Little for phenoptix!

January 13, 2013 Benjamin Gray

We've just taken delivery of a new batch of phenoptix products - this time proudly branded with our logo!

It's a rather neat Arduino shield featuring the almighty WS2801 LED controller IC. Which means you can PWM (fade (pulse width modulation) your colour outputs of a mighty 1A per channel (up to three Big Clive Floodlight boards!). If you want more than that then you can just stack another board on top and you can address each separately from just two digital pins!

Of course these go well with our Big Clive boards but go really well with a bit of RGB strip. Fortunately the products designer thought he'd test drive the product for us too.
