LPD8806 Lead Length

Hey,

Is there any restriction on how long the leads from my UNO to the LPD8806 can be? Seems they might have to be about 6ft for my setup.

Thanks,

Carl

My guess is that 6ft will be OK, however you may need to slow down the speed at which you send data to the strip, and possibly add termination resistors on the clock and data lines. Try it and see.

Thanks a bunch. Good to some idea before doing the install.
