Pixel Controller Electron

6/7/2016: New firmware version(v1c) available for download below, see README in the ZIP folder for details. The v1c firmware available from 5/27 til 6/7 may have issues under certain circumstances, please download the current version, which is indicated with a "-2"

 The Pixel Controller Electron is designed to be the smallest, most versatile pixel controller available with the ability to control most any type of addressable pixel. It features a 3-axis accelerometer for feedback and is optimized for flow toys, wearable applications, and dynamic lighting applications. Using the free software NLED Aurora Control, the user can create endlessly customizable color sequences and patterns, as well as P.O.V(Point of Vision) graphics. With 16 megabytes of onboard flash memory, accessible over micro USB and through addon WiFi or Bluetooth modules. No need for SD cards, readers, or extra equipment, all that is required is a micro USB cable same as your smart phone uses. It is compatible with voltages as low as 2 volts, no need for boost circuits or extra batteries. In addition to the the powerful stand-alone features, it also is capable of direct control of the outputs through TTL serial from external devices such as X-Bees, Arduinos, and FTDI adapters. It also supports DMX-512 reception, with a special stand-alone sequence control method, which allows sequences to be triggered and controlled. Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. to high standards, this controller offers a 3 year warranty and satisfaction guarantee.

 The onboard 16 megabyte memory is enough to hold 122 maximum sized color sequences. The maximum sequence size is 256 frames with 512 channels each. That equates to enough room for 122 RGB POV images of 256x170 pixels each. More flash memory than reasonably can be used.

 Multiple firmware versions support either stand-alone flow toy based designs. Or high pixel control over USB, WiFi, Bluetooth, or Serial, up to 2048 pixels can be controlled from a single controller.
