just watched your video that is a real good job there.
it looks like you have it... i am still drawing out the wiring diagram for mine... well i was till i figured out the last piece and how it SHOULD go. now its wait for the rest of my stuff to come in the mail and hope that i have the proper gauge wire. the gauge is 22 i am thinking maybe smaller like a 24 gauge or so. what do you think.
Hey guys, completely new to saberbuilding and arduino...could anybody direct me to a complete parts list? Thanks
I use 26 gauge most of the time. You want everything as small and flexible as possible inside that hilt. It tough to get things to fit.
thanks jakesoft i will keep that in mind for future builds. might as well use up the 22 i have now.
Really?! Reading this got me excited. My setup uses a 3.3V Pro Mini and could operate on a 3.7V power source without the need for a buck boost. I could run my color change setup with a resistor on only the red die if I use a Cree XP-E2 RGB 3-up LED. Forward voltages are 3.7V @ 1000ma, 3.4V @ 1000ma, and 2.65V@ 1000 ma. I could just run the WT588D's VDD pin off direct battery power since it's under the 5.5V max rating, so I could also drop the regulator from the design and save space, money, and complexity! Oh, man, I've gotta try this!
still no explanation as to how PWM will some how get the MOSFET to LOWER the voltage to the LEDs....?
In terms of an LED, what's actually being described is blinking. Interestingly, if you speed up the frequency to around 50~60Hz, our brains can't keep up and we perceive the blinking as a steady light due to an effect called Persistance Of Vision.
Hi, guys! Thanks for this awesome thread, it is really inspiring! Now I am still collecting information to figure out what components to order, so after having it all read out, I have a couple of questions to ask:How much memory do I need in the WT588D for a decent soundboard? Humming (idle, swing), clashes (preferably a few different samples), switch-on and switch-off sounds, beeps/perhaps voice prompts for setup...Are the sounds MP3 or PCM?What is the conclusion about the batteries - what form factor and technology are the best choice? I am aiming for the endurance, because I don't want the thing go dead on me in the middle of a party. Thanks!
