    4-String Differential SmartReceiver Boards


    View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f71zzem1jcaehvm/IMG_9997.JPG?dl=0


    The 4-String Differential SmartReceiver Board is a new board that replaces the existing "Falcon F16v2/F16v3 4-String Differential Receiver Board". It is not yet on the Pixel Controller website. The existing receiver boards are being discontinued.

    The new SmartReceivers include these additional features:
    - Built-in test mode for WS281x pixels, operated by a button on the SmartReceiver. This works even if the SmartReceiver is not connected to a controller.
    - A data reception LED indicator
    - Ability to cascade/daisy chain up to 3 SmartReceivers together from a single output on the controller. All 3 SmartReceivers on each output will share the pixel count allocated to that controller output.
    - DIP switches to configure the ID for each Smarteceiver in the chain.
    - Termination jumpers to tell the receiver that no SmartReceivers are cascaded/daisy chained.

    These will work on controllers shipped in previous years. A software update will be required to the controller.

    You cannot cascade/daisy chain existing "Falcon F16v2/F16v3 4-String Differential Receiver Board" from a SmartReceiver.

    FAQ

    Q: Can I get the other Falcon boards eg F4v3 or F8-Distro:
    A: Only boards listed in the first post are available.

    Q: Can you issue me an invoice?
    A: No, this is a group buy not a business so I cannot issue invoices.

    Q: Will boards be available after the group buy?
    A: Usually a few but not guaranteed and often not all types.

    Q: Will there be another group buy in 2019?
    A: I don't know. If you need these in 2019 you should join this buy now.

    Q: Will you ship to <insert country here>
    A: No, all orders need to be shipped to AU/NZ addresses

    Q: Can I pay in Australian dollars directly to your bank account?
    A: All orders are to be paid for in US$ via Paypal.

    Q: Can I pick up my order from you since I live in Adelaide?
    A: Yes - you still need to pay for shipping but I will refund it if you pick it up your order within 2 weeks of it being ready.

    Q: Can I email/PM you my order?
    A: Orders are only being taken via this thread. You must post your order in this thread.

    Q: Why can't you do xyz differently for me?
    A: Due to the large number of orders expected, every order must be done the same way. The buy takes a very large amount of my time as it is.

    Q: How much are they in Australian Dollars?
    A: Paypal should tell you when you try to transfer the US$. If you want a rough indication you can check a currency conversion website such as http://www.xe.com/
