As the old saying goes— proof of pumpkin is in the nibbling. So, I commenced to guys and gals at Backpack to place an order of WS2812B LED strip, manufactured by Alitove (naked eyes haven’t skipped their maxim, A LIGHT OF LOVE) on Amazon. I chose a length of 5M strip, where 300 WS2812B siblings cascaded together equidistantly. You don’t have to be worry (but money?) if you don’t need a whole strip of 300 LEDs. You can split required number of LED(s) at location marked after each individual LED on the strip. Don’t forget to add an extra resistor at the data pin of newly segregated strip. Now, let’s take a sneak preview of my first-pass hardware of six number of strips with 16 LEDs on each strip. Ooh shiny! It’s the cool terminology, “peak hold” in audio engineering that gave me the dazzling flavor of rain.
Time and again when I start working with electronics, after hitting the power button I always stare at LEDs with a hope that it might glorify itself with pride and whisper ‘Hello’. However, course of true love never did run smooth. This time it wasn’t magic smoke (another synonym of learning), but Dark Lord– noise of planet Analog. However, I got the company of distant friends on EEWeb who scarified their valuable time to sharpen my axes to battle on the dark side. How beautiful the internet is?
