  • Hi,

    I’m new to arduino/electronics I’m wondering if anyone thinks this might be suitable for use with some 12V LED strips? I have around 7 sections of single-color 12V LED strip (non-addressable), most of which will be around 0.5A. I just want them to switch on and off in sequence at max of maybe 5Hz. I wasn’t planning to do any PWM but looks like this wouldn’t be possible using these pins and the shiftOut() method anyway?

    It’s for a wearable project so liked the idea of this small self contained shield that doesn’t require me to build a PCB with mosfets.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

No public wish lists :(
