Compatibility question

Hi all,

I have a couple of Kulp boards (K8-PB & K4-PB) and I'm looking at some garden spotlights to run all year round, they have two control methods (chips) WS2811 IC (RGB) & UCS2904 (RGBW).

Are the Kulp boards able to control the RGBW component of the lights?



The hardware and BeagleBone channel outputs in FPP don't care if it is 3-channel RGB or 4-channel RGBW as long as it is WS281x compatible chips.  Most places in FPP work with RGBW, but there are some like the channel test page which are still mainly 3-channel.  I don't know if some or all WLED effects support 4-channel pixels, but your sequencing software should if you create sequences and then play them.


Thanks CaptainMurdoch that makes sense.

I might buy one and just do some testing to see what it can do.

Support FPP
