Using the ChipKIT Basic I/O Shield With Analog RGB Strip LEDs

A few months ago I wrote a blog post about the chipKIT Basic I/O Shield and used Analog RBG Strips to demonstrate the the open drain FETs. This post is to give details on how to wire up the strip LEDs to the I/O Shield. You should already know how to program MPIDE before using this Instructable. Step 1: Gather Materials Gather your materials: Strip of RGB LEDs (12V) usually, you can get them fairly cheaply ...

Addressable LEDs (WS2812) on ChipKIT

There has not been a simple addressable LED library for PIC32 microcontrollers until now! The PICxel library is an MPIDE library that handles the timing required to use addressable LEDs (WS2812, WS2811) or more commonly known as Adafruit Neopixels. Going through through a couple steps will allow your to get started with the PICxel library. What you will need: Digilent chipKIT (UNO32 or UC32) mini-USB cable ...
