Currently supporting the following RGB LEDs types

  • LPD6803
  • TM1809
  • HL1606
  • 595

LPD6803 Wiring

Currently this is using the old FastSPI library ( http://code.google.com/p/fastspi/ ) I would like to upgrade the code to they new FastLED ( https://github.com/FastLED/FastLED ) but I am using LPD6803 and it is not supported in the new version so I am not able to test a new version.

If anyone out there has one of the following LED types and could implement Afterglow Arduino with FastLED that would be awesome. (Below list from https://github.com/FastLED/FastLED#supported-led-chipsets)

  • Adafruit's Neopixel - aka the WS2812B (also WS2811/WS2812, also suppored in lo-speed mode) - a 3 wire addressable led chipset
  • TM1809/4 - 3 wire chipset, cheaply available on aliexpress.com
  • TM1803 - 3 wire chipset, sold by radio shack
  • UCS1903 - another 3 wire led chipset, cheap
  • LPD8806 - SPI based chpiset, very high speed
  • WS2801 - SPI based chipset, cheap and widely available
  • SM16716 - SPI based chipset
  • DMX - send rgb data out over DMX using arduino DMX libraries
