Beginning a new

Basically working from scratch.

Using LPD8806 strips.

I connected strips as such:

GND: BLACK cable
VCC: RED cable
SCK: WHITE cable


Using D15V35F5S3 step down regulator

  1. Connected the Battery to D15V35F5S3
  2. Connected the D15V35F5S3 to Strip  There is something wrong with Polulu  D15V35F5S3
  3. Connected a 5V phone charger to
  4. Connected ground of arduino to ground of power
  5. The GND-Line of the Power Supply and the GND-Line of the Arduino must have a connection (but only the gnd!
  6. Examples:
    1. Blink.ino
    2. Cylon
    3. Firstlight
      1. Datapin:: 2
      2. Clock Pin:3
      3. Worked when I undid all the LPD8806 comments
    4. RGBCalibrate.ino
      1. Cannot run with code  //FastLED.addLeds<LPD8806, DATA_PIN, CLOCK_PIN, RGB>(leds, NUM_LEDS);
      2. Can run with FastLED.addLeds<LPD8806, 2, 3, RGB>(leds, NUM_LEDS);
      3. Test ran ok as ran.

Now working on Blur1D

blur1d: one-dimensional blur filter. Spreads light to 2 line neighbors.
‘blur2d example is in D:DropboxMy EducationArduinoProjectsLEDSTRIPS_FASTLEDRandomCode2d 1d Blur bpmSmartMatrixSwirl

Not god for understanding basics of how the strip works.

Going into other examples:

Reading atuline – FastLED-Demos . The fastled_tips oldukça iyi.

İşime yarayacaklar:

FastLED.setBrightness(max_bright);                          // You can change the overall brightness on the fly, i.e. with a potentiometer.

Decided to work on WS2812B/NEOPIXEL. Code is working ok as WS2812B


  • colorpal_beat
    • WS2812B
    • #define LED_DT 2
      //#define LED_CK 3
      #define NUM_LEDS 223
      #define LED_TYPE WS2812B
      #define COLOR_ORDER GRB
      // LEDS.addLeds<LED_TYPE, LED_DT, COLOR_ORDER>(leds, NUM_LEDS); // Use this for WS2812B
  • confetti
  • fht_log
    • seems cool. works with a microphone. will need to get a microphone
  • fill_colours
    • This seems good as a permenant rainbow to work on a beatmatching code
