While visiting another ACL member, I saw that he had a CCR controller driving a CCR strip that had been cut into sections to form a 5 x 10 matrix. As soon as I saw the strip, I was pretty sure it was almost identical to the LPD6803 based one another ACL member had sent me to figure out the connections.
I had an ECG-PIXAD8 sitting here so thought I have a go at getting it to drive the CCR strip. The CCR strip uses a 12V supply as well as clock and data, so as long as I got the 12V and ground connections correct, the worst that should happen is that it wouldn't work. (famous last words!)
To limit the possible damage, I hooked up just one piece (10 pixels) of the CCR strip to the ECG-PIXAD8. I then configured the ECG-PIXAD8 for 10 pixels and LPD6803 pixel type, rebooted it and it worked. Sweet!
Now, I have not tested the CCR controller with a 3rd party LPD6803 strip yet as I simply don't have one. (It went back to that member a week ago) I do however have a string of 50 LPD6803 pixels. As they are 5V, I'll need to supply power to them separately, but share a common ground with the CCR controller output of course.
I'll post again once I set up the CCR controller and the second power supply, which should be in the next couple of days.
