I need some advice. I am trying to build a White LED underlite table which is divided into a grid of 12 by 24 to create around 200 cells. Each "cell"will be comprised of 36 LEDs in a 6x6 grid and wired together, which at 12v will draw about 0.1A.
I don't really want to use individually addressable LEDs as these are relatively more expensive than normal non-addressed ribbons, plus also I don't know if 10,000 LED would cope.
I have had a few thoughts on how to control each of the cells from using from using something like a Ws2812chip for each cell, or relays, but making something cheap, simple and reliable is key.
(I could take the grid size down to 6 by 12 each with 12 x 12 LEDs 144LEDs each)
Thanks in advance
