The future has landed in small pixelcontroller for RGB LEDs
ESPArtStick line are a small pixel controller designed to control a single addressable LED pixels/neopixels using a special shield and for the Wemos D1 mini. Works with FPP and xLights.
In the last few years, individually addressable RGB lights have been getting cheaper and cheaper. These lights contain a small controller chip alongside the RGB LED which makes it show a certain color. The controller chips have a serial data input and output, and can be daisy-chained together. In this way you can control many different lights using just a few control wires (rather than needing wires going to each individual light).If you’ve played around with controlling LED pixels, you know that getting the infrastructure set up to control your pixels can be quite time-consuming.
This Pi cape/hat for the Raspberry Pi allows you to use a screen to see FPP information as well as a joystick navigation to control the various features of FPP without having to remotely connect to you FPP.
No need to power both the raspberry Pi and the Cape/Hat. Build in power conversion (buck) will down grade your 12v power supply to the required 5v for your raspberry Pi.
Also with a build onboard power buck converter, you can use your current 12v and it will be converted to 5v for use with your raspberry Pi so you no longer need to have an additional 5v power power supply plugged into your raspberry Pi.
With on board display, you now can see what you IP address is, change information, and also easy fired up sequences or run pixel tests with ease.
This Plug-In-Plug device needs no additional changes as all the features. Using FPP 5.5 or 6.x, you can now have the ease of use for your FPP for your show player and fee up valuable space within your enclosure.
Incorporating LEDs into an electronic project used to be a veritable rat’s nest of wires and custom code. The arrival of dedicated LED driver chips brought welcome relief, offloading grunt work from the micro controller and allowing one to focus on the application. Much simpler, but still not “Christmas light” simple.The ESP Art StickIntegrates Lights in the latest advance in the quest for a simple and affordable full-color LED that is easy to use.
