NLED Pixel Controller Ion

This controller from NLED packs many features into a small form factor. It supports various communication methods for direct control of the outputs, such as USB, TTL serial, or DMX-512. But the focus of the design is the powerful stand-alone color sequence support. The software NLED Aurora Control, allows a user to interface with the controller and create custom color sequences, including custom POVs, that can be uploaded to the controller over USB. The controller supports up to 512 channels(170 RGB pixels) and will run the loaded color sequences without any data or computer connection. The small size, low current, 3-axis accelerometer, and dynamic stand-alone color sequences make this controller a good choice for wearables, hoops, staves, poi, bikes, and other controllable pixel based projects. The device currently supports several of the most popular pixel chipsets, with the ability to easily update the firmware with new features and chipset support.
