MegaBrite - Right-Angle Headers

This new MegaBrite is the same as our other one, except this version now has right-angle headers attached. It uses the same A6281 controller chip with simple SPI daisy chained control, but uses five-chip 100mA wide angle red, green, and blue LEDs. The perceived output power of the red channel is less than the blue and green channels, but when mixed at maximum output, it appears white. Each LED supplies a blinding ~35,000 mcd over a 120 degree viewing angle.

Due to the additional power requirements, no more than five MegaBrites should be operated on a straight through chain of 6 pin cables. A screw terminal header is supplied to directly inject power on various points of the chain. If desired, each MegaBrite can be powered individually.

MegaBrite - Right-Angle Headers Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
