BlinkM ist eine über I2C steuerbare RGB LED Kombination.
Es besteht aus drei ultrahellen 10mm LEDs und einem kleinen AVR, dieser übernimmt die PWM Steuerung der einzelnen Farben.Vollständige Englische Beschreibung:
If you used BlinkM and you thought it was good, but needed something to
temporarily blind your enemy, the MaxM is what you need. Three large
10mm LEDs combine the forces of 15 individual LED cores to create a
flood of RGB light.
BlinkM MaxM is an intensely-bright smart LED
for prototyping that comes as a
package of two components, a control module (MaxM Master) and a
daughter board with three ultrabright LEDs (MaxM Blaster).
Master runs our unique firmware that creates
virtually any RGB color, fades smoothly between two colors, and blinks
in virtually any pattern. Like its smaller sibling, it requires almost
no knowledge of electronics. Its powerful 1 amp MOSFET transistors can
control the industry's most power-hungry LEDs, while its 12 volt power
supply lets it be run from a wide variety of power sources, making it
perfect for prototyping automotive applications and low-voltage track
Blaster's trio of LEDs are 50 times as bright as a standard BlinkM and
more than 1000 times as bright as a standard LED. They're so amazingly
bright they kind of freak us out (and should absolutely not be looked
at directly, under any circumstances!).
it includes four analog input lines, which means that its behavior can
be changed without requiring an external controller. We have expanded
the BlinkM control language to make this powerful capability available
without affecting backward compatibility. All existing BlinkM software
should run on the MaxM without requiring any changes.
