I’ve done several smaller Arduino projects, but have one that I need to work on that’s larger than I normally do and am having trouble working out the scale and any considerations I need to make because of it.
Here’s what I need to do:
I have 12 arcade buttons and each one has an RGB LED in it. I need to be able to read all the buttons, and change the color of each of the LED’s. I’ll be reading the button states and setting the LED colors through some separate custom software.
Right now I just don’t know where to start, I’ve found info on single LED’s and programmable strips/matrices, but not a bunch of individual ones. Is there different considerations for this? Things I should keep in mind? If my LED’s are wired up fairly far from each other do I need to change resistance or anything? Any help with this would be awesome.
