This pixel driver board interfaces your BeagleBone running Falcon Player Software to up to 20 Channels of RGB pixels. It will operate on a supply voltage of 9-32VDC. Off-board power distribution is required. This board contains no "smarts" and simply provides power to the BeagleBoard and has drivers/amplifiers for the data channels.
3.5mm Terminal blocks are provided for all wires. The board boasts 8 channels of high current 5v data drivers with TVS protection to prevent accidental damage of the channel outputs in addition to 12 channels of differential driven "two wire" data for long distance runs. This particular board is set up to use normal wire on terminal blocks for the differential data. This can be advantageous when running data in a cable with power and not using CAT5 cable. Our Quad Receiver is meant to pair with these channels to convert the signal back to standard TTL data for WS28xx lights.
The first of their kind, our boards feature preview LEDs that give a glimpse of the data for each channel at the first address. Your addresses are NOT affected by this feature. Another never before seen feature that our boards pioneer is selectable output impedance or "drive power". With a simple selection on the DIP switch, you can pick between normal and high power for those long wire runs. We've seen as much as double the distance capable with this feature. If you have a nice short connection to your first light, leave the channel in low power mode to minimize signal ringing.
You won't find a driver with better signal integrity.

The BeagleBoard is NOT included. We have Beagle Boards for sale separately based on availability. This setup works best with the BeagleBone Black WiFi. Some connectors may be blocked on other versions.
