Topic: LED Controller with STP08DP05 (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I had fun playing around with this LED controller. The chip was cheap enough and pretty easy to use. I ran out of room on my little breadboard or would have had an array of 24 single color LEDS. I did manage 16. As you can see from my YouTube video I did hook up 8 multicolor LEDs.

I encourage you to get some of these and try them out. If you found this fun or interesting please make a small donation to my PayPal account at https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=GTBD7T7BXPGQY. I have many more Arduino projects in mind and appreciate your support.
