Initial testing

Now for some practical stuff. I have created a simple breadboard solution for the driver circuit and hooked 7 Ledberg lamps up to NMOS transistors. The breadboard is quite a mess! whats in there is: on top a PIC16F688 MCU. below that is a 7805 linear regulator for supply. The …

POV display with UV diodes

a POV display is normally a display that is moved fast through the air. the lights on the display will have a distinct tail on them so the graphics will look like it is floating in mid-air. Instead I want to make an inversed version of the POV display. A …

Dimmer in action!

Here is another short video. This time it is the dimmer circuit for the Ledberg lights in the bedroom. You might be able to see a small flicker in the brightness at low levels. That is due to the quick and dirty code that is running at the MCU right …
