I am pretty new to all of this so please forgive my ignorance. I have been working with an Arduino and a bread board and am trying to apply what I learned to a real world project. I have 6 Cree LED lights that I am hooking up in a light panel, each light will be 2 ft apart. I want to control the lights with the Arduino. From bread board to real world, how do I get there? Right now prototyping is powered through the Arduino, but for the Cree I will need to add a power supply, I am also using drivers in place of resistors. I also need to be able to run clean wiring at some distance since the lights will be 2 feet apart. I can't find anything that explains how you might put this together, like do I wire everything back to a perfboard and then wire that to the Arduino. How do I introduce a power supply and driver? What is the cleanest way to run wires at length?
Any help or direction to a "how to" is much appreciated.
