LX1203 driver chip (one bad pixel doesn't affect other nodes)
« on: October 14, 2015, 02:14:09 PM »
Will the F16V2 support these pixel strings with the LX1203 driver chip.  The description mentions that it's similar to WS2811.  But, how similar?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

We have tested them and they are supported by F16V2. We made a selection for this string type as they run slightly faster if I recall.

Thanks for the response. 

Have yet to power up my F16V2 board.  Power supplies arrived but wanted to fuse DC out connection to the F16V2 just to be on the safe side.
