Some more info on my project. Some here have seen it already on the fastLED forums and diy Christmas groups. For those who are not familiar I created a DMX (sacn e1.31) controller host board called the MegaPixel Controller. It’s intended for the entertainment market such as Christmas lights and DJ / Stage / theatre etc. I do plan on sellling the host boards as diy kits (assemble and pre assembled) My first batch was a success but component placement was a problem and I new it would be a start with improvements to be made. now on to phase two I redesigned the host controller board and getting it sent in for fab now. This one has the components mainly the Ethernet and octo rj45 in a better location. This should allow an easier diy case to be made for it. I will be working on a revision 2 for the receiver boards soon. The first picture shows the Rev1 board that I have been using and testing with. You can also see me placing components to make sure placement has proper spacing for teensy and W5200/w5500 module.

Check my youtube videos including a large 1600 Matrix being used with the controller and receiver code using various programs such as Jinx, vixen, and xlights.. I also have used FPP (falcon Pi Player) with the MegaPixel Controller and testing so far works great.

Most importantly I want to thank Paul & Robbin and all of yuu that have made / contributed to teensy and the libraries to make it possible: Mark, Daniel & community at fastLED and Paul, manitou and community for their massive contribution to making this project for me possible .

Some More Progress. My Site is now up

I now have PCB only kits available. I will work on getting a step by step tutorial assembling them and getting the code running with software.

Making some progress on a SMD version of this project. Looks like a familiar form factor? :cool:

Merhaba Crees.
Ethernet Dmx controller için yapmış olduğun kartı nasıl tedarik edebilirim. Eline saglik çok güzel olmuş.Ben jinx programında kullanmak istiyorum. Yardımcı olursan memnun olurum.
Teşekkür ederim.
