Thread: Neopixel Crystal Chamber

  1. #1

    Default Neopixel Crystal Chamber

    Hi!
    I'm working on a neopixel saber with the PRIZM 5.5 Board.
    This saber will have a crystal chamber with a crystal LED, but I'm not sure if this LED should be a single Neopixel LED wired in series or a Common Anod/Cathod RGB 5mm LED wired as showed in the manual (see below).
    For room purposes I would prefer the Neopixel LED...
    Some screen form the PRIZM manual

    Accent Pixel should do the trick. I personally would wire it parallel to the blade. It's the diagram that appears above the one you posted here.

    The problem with using a 5mm Neopixel Straw Hat LED, is that the color order is different than your blade. Most strips are in color order GRB. Most of the straw hat 5mm neopixels are RGB. So, you'll have messed up colors in your chamber, unless you can run the straw hat LED on its own channel for data, which I don't think is possible on Prism.
