1  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Controller for 140+ LEDs AND Arduino hardware/sofware simulators. on: December 09, 2012, 10:02:29 pm
Thanks for all the help and will look into different  shift registers to use.

Does anyone know about an emulator or simulator like Virtual bread Board that can simulate arduino programing and a bread board at the same time?

* would arduino be the best way to control 132 leds?

Would Arduino be the most cost efficient way to power 132 leds?

Example of controlling 32 LEDs:

You could do more by adding more shift registers in sequence.


Could this be done with another shift register with more outputs while using the same amount of power?

also i saw that you have done this with your bare bones board with 3 AA batteries, and was wondering how long the battery life was with it flashing and constantly on.

thanks for the help.

thanks for the fast response and info i will read through tronixstuff and post if i have any other questions.





Thanks again

Im new to Arduino and was wondering if it could control 100 - 200 different LEDs individually . Ive seen arduinos that can control 8 leds  but nothing as big as i was thinking.

Also are there any programs that will simulate the arduino software and/or hardware, where i can maybe draw out plans and programming to test without having the physical parts.



Thanks for all the help in advance.
