Hyperion / Phoenix 3/4" hoop controller board.
These are the controller boards used in our 3/4" hoops, sold individually as spare parts or for integration with your own LED projects. Three versions are currently available: 2nd generation with Bluetooth, 3rd generation with WiFi, and 3rd generation with WiFi and an integrated power switch, used in 2018 Phoenix hoops.
WiFi boards are also available with a u.fl connector for connecting an external antenna. If you need the external antenna version, please make a note in the order comments.
Please note that these boards are not a drop-in replacement for SpinFx Phoenix boards.
A #4-40 PEM fastener at the left edge of the board provides both the physical attachment and the positive power connection. The intended power source is a single 3.7v Li-ion cell, and the board includes an integrated Li-ion charger.
The pin header assignments, from bottom to top, are ground, LED data, and LED power. The unpopulated pad at the top is for the LED clock signal used by APA102 and LPD8806 LEDs. The LED power pin is connected to the power input via a P-channel MOSFET that controls power to the LED strip for power saving modes.
Supported LED types include WS2811, WS2812B, WS2813, SK6812 (RGB, RGBY, and RGBW), and LPD8806.
