Arduino RGB LED Controller

August 23rd, 2011 56 comments

When reorganizing our stock I found a whole bunch of diffused RGB LEDs (>100pcs) so I thought I would make something cool with them. Maybe some kind of individual controllable christmas light or some lights you could use for showcases etc.


So I decided once again to make a project using the Arduino Duemilanove, as it is so quick and easy to get a prototype working.
After some brainstorming, thinking about how I should do the PWM multiplexing, I designed a circuit capable of driving 8 individual RGB LEDs using 11 pins. The project would be easily expandable and would only cost 1 extra pin for each extra RGB LED.

FEZ Panda & PS3 Controller

NB: The newest source code can now be found at github.

As Thomas origanally posted, the FEZ Panda can actually be used as a USB-Host: Fez Panda And USB Host. I have for long time wanted to use my PS3 DualShock 3 controllers for something useful (besides playing Playstation of course), therefore I thought it would be interesting to connect it to the FEZ Panda.
