Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

The title is mostly a placeholder, as I haven't really figured out a name for it yet. This project is a wall hanging that consists of semi-large triangular pixels using discrete RGB LED's and PWM to control intensity levels of each LED, resulting in a 4096-color display.

Quick parts update

OK, quick update.
  • Yesterday, I received the 40 driver chips from Maxim and the 3 back-ordered LEDs from Hosfelt (they shipped those 3 LEDs in a giant FedEx box...). I haven't done anything with them yet. Probably this weekend I will though.
  • I ordered 10 each of 3 different LED colors from SuperBrightLEDs as well as 10 3-color LEDs (they were actually decently priced). I've got more testing for those to try to get the colors to mix properly.
  • I also ordered a bunch of soldering supplies from Mouser. A different soldering iron tip (hopefully, it will fit in my exisiting iron), some 15 mil solder, solder wick, a flux pen, & cleaning alcohol.
