** This thread is now in the AVD section here. A lot of people are using pixels these days, so I designed a small PCB (38mm x 51mm) so they could add 3 channels of DC control and drive it from their pixel controller (TP3244, PIXAD8, etc). This board accepts pixel data in the WS2801 format, so for example could be added to a mega tree to add a star topper using DC strip or other lights. The maximum current capacity is 5 Amps between the 3 channels which should be more than enough. It can draw power from the 4 pin pixel I/O connectors or a dedicated DC input. Once I get some prototypes made I'll post a picture of the completed board.
