Description: The SPLixel Controller USB is a USB to WS281x (WS2812 / WS2812B) LED driver. The SPLixel Controller USB can be used with almost any computer (see the list of FTDI drivers link below). SPLixel Controller USB can be used by simply opening a terminal connection on your computer or by writing your own code and use it with a serial connection.

Running the WS281x style LEDs requires precise and fast timing. Achieving the required timing is nearly impossible with a computer. To make this easy, we have designed the SpikenzieLabs SPLixel Controller. The SPLixel Controller USB accepts serial input over a USB cable at 57600 baud, and handles all of the timing required to run the LEDs. As with any of our SPLixel Controllers, you can address any individual LED, or use some of the many built in functions that address all of the LEDs. Fun animations included. Once the SPLixel controller receives its command, your main processor is completely free to do ANYTHING else you want. The SPLixel controller does all of the work running the LEDs. If you have chosen a continuous style function the SPLixel controller will continue to run without any additional commands, until it is told to stop.

  • 2.1mm DC jack for power input (5v ONLY)
  • 2 position pin header
  • Shunt jumper
Some assembly required: The SPLixel Controller USB comes pre-programmed and tested. For maximum flexibility, the screw terminals and headers do not come soldered in place. You may choose to; solder them on, solder directly to a LED strip, solder pin headers on for breadboard use etc ...
