    If you knew the kind of stuff I worked with you would laugh at having asked that question:p

  • News - New Product Friday: Makin… | last year

    Can the 10m LED wire be cut into shorter lengths to run at lower voltage?

  • Product COM-11755 | last year

    I have found blue and purple LEDs both make fluorescent pigments fluoresce, but there is a lot of variability between manufacturers and background lighting conditions are important to the overall effect.

    These are way more flexible than the HL1606 based strips I built my 2010 Burning Man art project with:

    With the HL1606 you can only do 3-bit color (RGBCMYW) individually addressed. You can get more color range in gradients which is pretty but quite limited. Can’t wait to try some of these out!

    FYI, The scale reference in the pictures is hilariously wrong.
    How easily will one of these fit into a protoboard with 0.1" spacing?

  • Product COM-09203 | about 4 years ago

    Can someone explain what the AIN (Audio) pin is for and how to use it? To my novice eyes, it appears there is a pull-up resister on this pin and a high-pass filter (0.1uF cap) in series connecting it to one of the ATMega’s ADC pins.
    Personally, I would like an accessible ADC pin to connect one of sparkfun’s amplified microphone break-out boards (either the MEMS or Electret version) and then run an FFT like this:
