hello led workshop wiki discussion page ...


Dirt cheap arduinos

Search ebay for - arduino nano. Get a clone/compatible model on ebay:

You can also use a small, cheap microcontroller like an [ATTiny] to drive some of these strips!

--Not the most user friendly microcontroller, but hella cheap!

Cheap LED strings

Again, Ebay is the cheapest, however provides no customer service..but that's why we're here anyway: 

WS2801 -
WS2811 -

--The WS2801 is the most commonly supported driver chipset, but the WS2811 are the up and coming new kids on the block and work just as well with the FASTSPI library.
