So I want to create a webpage on the raspberry pi so people can visually sequence LED's.
I have 32rgb led's and a color wheel of 96 posibilities (97 if you count off). I'm thinking I need to setup my arduino to listen for a long variable for each frame, decode it and send it to the tlc's. So we need a four digit number per led. two for position, and two for the position in the color wheel plus another 4 for the delay so it need to read 50 characters. something like 004501460223036704000500060007000800090010001100120013001400150016001700180019002000210022002300240025002600270028002900300031560050
so the arduino will break it down per LED channel 00 will load up the color wheel position 45, channel 01 will load color wheel position 46 etc... Delay of 50
I'm not quite sure if it can handle that large of a number being passed to it, maybe it needs to listen and concatenate the numbers or fill an array.
I plan on having 10 -32 frames of these 50 char variables, so would it be better to listen to it all then go with it, or process each frame at a time?
On the raspberry pi side I just need to write the webpage to 50 char variable to send on the serial line which should* be easy for me.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
here is what I have already with an arduino and tlc5940's with high powered leds http://www.youtube.com/embed/kwIKgy6EBoQ
