Lumenati Hookup Guide

Introduction The Lumenati line of LED boards is designed to give your projects an edge in their lighting capacity. Based on the APA102C addressable LED, these LEDs employ a 2-wire communication protocol consisting of a clock line and a data line. While this requires one more wire than standard WS2812B addressable LEDs, the advantage is that the communication …

beakn v0.3 : DIY Lync Status Light with a RaspberryPi, .NET, Mono and MQTT

I’m continuing to build out “beakn” my DIY Lync Status light. This is what I’m calling a “maker experience” project. I want to know what a maker goes through to build things so I’m building it with as many different platforms as possible. I’ve built it with Arduino and Netduino. Version 0.1 brought us a …

Lightfair: Temp-tuneable LED light engine dims to 0.5%

At LightFair, LED Engin will demonstrate a 2200 lm light engine that has halogen-style dimming from 1,600K to 3,000K as well as colour temperature (CCT) tuning between 2,100K and 4,300K. Called LuxiTune Generation 3.0 and aimed at replacing 120W halogen lamps, “both tuning curves track the black body curve closely and light intensity [flux] is …

Solar Driveway Light to MSP430 Wireless Sensor Node

The basic idea of this project is to convert a $3-4 solar light found at Lowes and Home Depot hardware store (here in the US) into a wireless remote sensor node.  The node will utilize an MSP430G2553 MCU and a nRF24L01+(w/ spirilis library) wireless module to send light intensity (photoresitor that came with solar driveway …
