    Oh and I am successfully using the Raspberry Pi as a host for uploading code, works a treat. Hoping to write a Python or similar web server on it to act as a way to switch modes from devices...

    I wanted to report back that things are moving along swimmingly! I got a 74AHCT125 chip and while that was great to run all 896 on one strand, I realized it was time to take advantage of the...

    Thanks for the suggestion, followed this wiring diagram (mentally replace raspberry pi with teensy) and everything is working great - mega 2560 successfully replaced so far!...

    As I mentioned in the other thread, I was trying the Adafruit_Neopixel library, but getting no output. If this was a voltage issue, would I get something? I have ordered one of the 8bit level...

    As this thread is about SK6812 RGBW, what libraries would work best with a single strand of that? I had another thread but it got closed (sorry if duplicate, but my unique details are therein:...

    Migrating from Mega 2560 to Teensy 3.6

    I recently picked up a Teensy 3.6 and am trying to figure out how to jump to it with my existing library. Currently have 896 sk6812 RGBW LEDs in one "strand" that exists on 14 panels of 64 LED each...

    I might be having the same problem. I am trying to upgrade from a Mega 2560 and getting no output from my Teensy 3.6. Can anyone provide more details about this speed setting? Where can one modify...
  8. Glad you got that sorted and no damage to LEDs!

    Glad you got that sorted and no damage to LEDs!

    If the LEDs aren't on, did it blow? Are they smokey or anything? Hot wire... Hmmm - are you powering the LEDs via a breadboard? Those tiny filaments can't handle that kind of amperage. The LEDs...

    Not yet possessing a Teensy myself, (Christmas wish list) I don't have answers for most of those questions. But regarding FPS I would think you'd want things to appear pretty responsive if you plan...

    Yeah I was just gonna share that link, great stuff in that series of articles.

    I'm really curious what pattern/layout you're going for. A perimeter around outside wall or something?

    The...

    Thanks! I used 20AWG. And yep the fuses are to protect from surge. Those power supplies are ridiculously cheap, so I feared turning on the unit (whole thing powered by light switch) could send too...

    In that case, here is the whole album if you want to see some of what all I went through, including some comments on some of the images: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ADcRzWSOY0mPjzje2
    Happy to discuss...

    I did make a somewhat large (to me, at least) project on a Mega 2560, which I'm aiming to replace with a Teensy 3.5 or 3.6 (asking for one from wife for Christmas) as I'm hitting too many limitations...

    Your project seems very ambitious. 7,200 LEDs is going to take a ton of power. That's like 432amps of power.

    Anyway, I'm new to the world of Teensy myself (mostly used Arduino thus far) but I can...

    Thanks, this is just what I was thinking of doing. If there was a compiler for the RPI then maybe one could just SSH in to it and do all coding work there? Work, compile, transfer sketch.

    I've got...
