Sequential Fade of Individual Leds

Post by Improviser » Mon Jun 21, 2010 11:29 pm

Hello...

I am trying a simple starter project and would like to sequentially fade 16-24 Leds (not RGB).
I have looked around but cannot find how to even get started. I've done some Arduino coding but would need
some guidance wiring the Leds up and some sample code.

Hi Improviser,

You can reference to http://code.google.com/p/rainbowduino/downloads/list, and download the demo code Rainbowduino_v1_0_4.zip, in which you can see how to light 7 led strips by rainbowduino.

May it helpful to you, and feel free to ask any question.

Regards,

I've seen that one and it seems far too complex for my needs. I am now using with some simple code for an Arduino and two TLC5940 led driver chips. This gives me 16 individual Led channels but is more expensive than your Rainbowduino. I was hoping I could find some simpler sample code that would justify the Rainbowduino.
