ArduiLED for driving addressable RGB LED Strip

ArduiLED, Arduino board for driving addressable RGB LED Strip with added nice features

Today I would like to share with you a Arduino board that I done to drive adressable RGB Led strip (such as LPD8806) . I created this board to a specific project but since I put some nice features on it, I use it day by day. Since I will use it a lot and write some Arduino code for different projects, I decided to publish it to help you to understand the code and my different projects and illustrate the post I will do. But also you will be able to do the board for your own project if you want.

Here is picture of the board with program used to to range testing of RF modules with RFM12B breakout board

 The features on the board are :

  • Arduino format with all standart headers, ATMEGA 328 regulated at 3V3 (needed because NRF24L01 need 3V3)
  • FTDI connector for firmware update
  • NRF24L01 connector to be able to do wireless driving of the LED strip (breakout board for RFM12B also available)
  • Micro SD connector
  • Connector for Adafruit 128×32 I2C Oled or Tindie 128×64 Oled
  • 5 Way tactile switch for menu navigation
  • Connector for 6 RGB Led Strip
  • Three on board leds for visual indication
  • Lipo battery connector (no Lipo charger on board)

The schematics are located on my github in the ArduiLED section, of course I will post code for OLED, SD, LED, tactile switch soon.
