LED control board
« on: February 21, 2007, 08:56:14 PM »
I am looking to animate a matrix of LEDs. I am looking for something similar to a microprocessor, where there are multiple channels, however instead of it controlling the wavelength of the third wire and keeping the voltage on the first two constant, I am looking for just two wires per channel on which the voltage can be adjusted from mybe 0-4 volts.

I think I got lost as soon as you said wavelength. Elaborate.

try this one, itll run lotsa leds with the darlington array output..

also it can do PWM to run LEDs if you like...  (upto 2 channels)

and you can addon a devantech I2C servo controller to control upto 21 more lines of .5-2.5 mS LED pulses (servo pulses...)

so whatever your needs... check it out!!

but the darlington array is great for running a LED matrix.

Here is a schematic for a counter circuit with varying speed, and if you wont to control the voltage on one pin gust add a transistor and a pot to that pin to control it.Cum to think of it the transistor and the pot could be used on a microcontruler to.

sorry about the name of the schematic that part of the circuit was from a nother circuit that I was designing.
