In a conversation with a friend of mine about a thread I posted in January;
This is about using transistor boards I created last year to drive dumb strings.
David_AVD (from previous thread) and...
I want to try to keep cost to a minimum because the F48 and 3 differential boards will cost me around $380NZD and I don't want to purchase separate boards to use dumb RGB strips. 2018 I made my own controller using an Arduino with transistor switching boards.
I have 25 boards each with 6 NPN...
I have a PIxlite16 controller with various WS2811 pixel strings and strips, but want to include a dumb pixel item or two (eg star or angel) in my display.
Taking into account the current draw of a single node, would control for the dumb objects have to be separate (ie run from relays)...
