    It's a pretty long hilt...you would have to be able to fit something in there. What board did you have in mind for this? What chassis solution? If it's TCSS Discs, you may very well be SOL, but if...

    I would also check out Erv's video on how to calculate actual vF for individual LEDs, as the datasheets can sometimes be inaccurate. It requires a benchtop PSU.

    Actually...I think I might know what's wrong with the CEx.

    As I look at it under a magnifier, I see that there are some bridged pins on the offending channel's bottom-side components. I will...

    Thanks for popping in, FJK.

    I seriously don't know what I did to it, but at least the problem was resolved. I'm honestly very impressed with the CF8 and CEx color mixing. Now comes the long,...

    Well...

    Originally, the segment did light up evenly. I drove them at 40mA, under the advisement of the CF LS 6.5 manual. But then I encountered the heat problem, shortly before the dimming...
