Another newbie question…
1- I have neopixel stirps that come pre-wired with 3 pin (female) connectors, I have similar 3 pin (male) connectors connected to my development board, the length of the connecting wire in total would be around 7-8 inches. Now the adafruit best practices guide says to add a 300-500ohm resistor near the pixel end, but my question is that can I add that to my dev board given the length of the connecting wire is not too long? or is it really too long for that resistor to be effective? I just don’t want to re-solder the connections to the strip after adding the resistor.
2- I will have 1 meter strip either 30 or 60 pixels depending on the use case, can I use 1000 uf capacitor with both these strips or do I need to change the capacitor for 30 pixels to a lower value?
Additional Info: The controller will be ATTIny85 and the power source will be common for both ATTiny and the strip (either a 3 cell AAA power pack, or 5v USB)
Help please. Thanks.
