LED Light Controller
====================
-The LED Light Controller is a simple board to control light strip.
-These have hundreds of LEDs (60-120 led/meter) and use 12V (and ~1A/m).
+The LED Light Controller is a simple board to control light strips.
+These have hundreds of LEDs (60-120 led/meter) and use 12V (and ~0.5A/m).
This board offers 2x5 outputs, so to be able to control 10 light strips independently (1 per color, RGB requires 3 channels).
-The brightness of the light strips is PWM-controlled (this only works for LEDs).
+The brightness of the light strips is PWM-controlled (this works well with LEDs).
Different "modes" can be saved so to be able to rapidly select between user-defined settings.
-You can control the lights over bluetooth, or using (almost) any infrared remote control (which you will have to configure using the serial or bluetooth port first).
+You can control the lights over UART, or with (almost) an infrared remote control using NEC code (which you will have to configure using the UART port first).
-The power for the light strips and the board is provided by an off-the-shelve PC power supply (compliant to the ATX specification).
+The power for the light strips and the board is provided by an off-the-shelf PC power supply (compliant to the ATX specification).
These offer ~10A for the 12V output through the main large connector (with 20 pins for ATX v1.x and 24 pins for ATX v2.x), which is used for the 5 first output channels.
An additional 12V output is provided through a smaller 4-pin connector by ATX v2.x power supplies, used for the 5 last output channels.
**The second connector has 4 pins, with 2 yellow cables on the side with the clip, and 2 black cables on the other side. DON'T CONNECT the one with 4 different colors.**
