Power Injection/Signal Amplifier
« on: May 21, 2016, 12:20:39 PM »
Hello,

I am doing some research to determine the interest in a product that I am working on for power injection.

The idea would be to input power from a Power Supply that ranges from 5 to 24 Volts.  You would then input your power, ground, and signal (Dat and Clock) and output the signal with power from the input, amplifying and cleaning up your signal and injecting the power to the next set of rgb lights.

I am wondering if this would be of interest to the DIY community and how many banks of input/output you would like to see off of a single power supply to make it worth your interest?

I am looking forward to your comments and opinions?

Thanks,

Mike

Not quite understanding what you have in mind here.


2 power inputs?


Would the data inserted be SPI or ?? (Assumption is yes, but in this game anything is possible.)


An example (diagram?) would be nice.



Sequencers: Vixen3 and xLights
Players: FPP and xSchedule Controllers:  Renards - SS24/SS16; E1.31 - San Devices E682 - Falcon F16, F4, F48 - J1Sys - DIYLEDExpress E1.31 Bridges.  Much more!

My initial read is that it duplicates what our current uAmp (micro Amp) board does, except for trying to handle power distribution.

A diagram would definitely help.

Perhaps this will help.

There would/could be multiple banks of In and Out for injecting power and amplifying the data signal.
