NLED Pixel Controller Mini

The NLED Pixel Controller Mini supports several of the most popular pixel types and has the ability to accept standard DMX-512, in addition to TTL serial signals from a computer, microcontroller, Arduino, or other TTL serial devices. Several configuration options, such as pixel IC type, amount of pixels to control, reception baud rate, and end-of-frame spacing can be customized to work well with your project. All configurations are changed over the serial connection header or through the DMX hardware(RS-485) using a compatible serial adapter or DMX transmitter. This small(1.5" x 1.5" x 0.5") design is great for small amounts of pixels for DMX control, strands, rope style lights, or even low-pixel LED matrices. Serial control is compatible with NLED Matrix, the Java based open-source LED Matrix control and mixing software.

Current Version is v.4a. If you already own a Pixel Controller Mini and would like to upgrade your firmware to a newer version(current is v4), it will require ordering a new MCU. They are avaialble for $1+S&H or Free with purchase of any other product, Contact Us for help ordering.
