Atmega AVR RGB Controller via serial port.

A really simple project, conceived when I was looking to mod my PC case with RGB LED-strips. I discovered my motherboard had a header for RS232 serial comms. The idea is to hook a small Atmega board inside the PC, leech off of a 12V supply rail, and receive commands from the PC to change colors via the serial port.

Target

  • ATMega16 @ 16MHz for testing
  • in the future also ATMega328 @ 10 MHz (internal oscillator) for actual mounting inside the PC
