Next-Generation Luma Nodes – Build Timelapse

The next iteration of the Luma node has been fabricated and assembled! The new node incorporates 3 10W RGBW LEDs, controlled with constant-current buck drivers and an ATTINY2313 microcontroller. Like all Luma nodes, up to 32 nodes can be daisy-chaned

MNL: Networked LED Lighting

MNL is a multi-node high-power RGB lighting system. It consists of a controller (PC or embedded system) and multiple light nodes networked with RS485. The first prototype nodes are up and running, and we will be developing the second revision

tinyRGB – an i2c LED driver

tinyRGB is a minimalist blinkM-compatible high-current i2c RGB LED controller consisting of only 10 basic components. The board is small and inexpensive, can be fabricated for as little as $1/board, and can easily be assembled by hand with a total

RGB Multi-Node Lighting

This project uses the open-source i2c RGB LED controller firmware “cyz_rgb” to create a modular high-power lighting network. The network is controlled by an Arduino, which scans the network for nodes controls them autonomously with onboard scripts, manually via serial
