The LED fX is an extremely simple and effective design - specifically engineered to control 16 individual output ports. Each port has an LED attached to it, allowing for attractive effects to be achieved by running customized code on the built-in PIC processor.
The unique design allows for the selection of various lights effects stored on the processor by selecting a routine from the onboard DIP switch. The processor will run the built-in routine selected and display the output on the LEDs.
The outputs are buffered through a ULN2803 8-bit TTL-Input NPN Darlington sink driver – which allows for the control of high-current devices from a single processor pin. Each Darlington can handle a maximum of 500mA of continuous current at a maximum of 50V – making the ULN2803 well suited to provide an interface between the low logic levels of the processor to higher current/voltage devices such as relays, solenoids, motors, lamps, LEDs and other devices.
