If you have one of those 5050/WS2811 aka WS2812 strips and you want to "wear" it, I have a board for you. Here are the specs: 20pin MSP430G2xx3 5V power supply 0.05" programming header UART input (allows pixel or sequence control) 11mm wide (0.45") 25mm long (1") 32mm long (1.25") - version with memory optional SOIC SRAM or EEPROM 1mm thick There are 4 boards on the panel, 2 with memory option. Assembled boards Board in the sleeve Board attached to 30 LED strip (0.5m)
This project is an offshoot of an earlier investigation of wireless wearables using the MSP430G2553: http://forum.43oh.com/topic/10060-msp430-wearable-with-radio/. The concept has been successfully tested and is described below. I plan regular updates as the project progresses. The objective is to develop a wearable powered by a coin cell that can be controlled remotely. It could be used, as an example, in the tiara below or on a costume worn by dancers in a performance and controlled from offstage. In the photo an earlier MSP430G2553 coin cell powered wearable is attached to the tiar
After making the wearable MSP430 for Halloween this year I was requested to make more for a children's dance group. I have a question, but first some background. This is the latest version: Everything works fine. I use an adapter with pogo pins to program it as shown in the photo. There are three LEDs on the PCB, a push button switch for the user, and more accessible pins than the previous version. Parts are TSSOP and 0805 SMD. Snap fasteners and stainless thread can be used to connect it to LEDs on the costume. A CR2032 coin cell is used to power it (coin cell holder is on the backsi
