This kit includes (2) two StarChip16 LED boards instead of the standard LED strip. The photos on this listing show a standard LED strip, this standard LED strip is NOT included in this kit. Please be extra careful when wiring the StarChip16 boards. They are polarized and will be destroyed if connected backwards.
Refer to the printed markings on the circuit boards. See below for more information. After 3 years of research, development, community feedback, and end-user enhancement, we're proud to offer the third version of the open-source sequential shift light. Comes with everything you need to get started - ready to solder and install! Featuring a comprehensive menu system to customize your shift-light, rpm zone colors, smoothing, brightness adjustment, animations, and much more!This unit ships with the latest Shift Light software pre-loaded and bench-tested. All wires, connections, and components wired and ready for assembly! Improvements from V2 include + Upgraded, Faster LEDs (APA102C Dotstar) replace old WS2812B.
NOTE: STARCHIP16 BOARDS x 2 + New graphic OLED display + Vastly improved RPM circuitry, power regulation, and protection + New Animations (out-to-center now included) + Optimized code and calculations. + USB output and dim icons.
Simply connect the RPM Input wire to a 0-12V Square wave (RPM signal) from your vehicles ECU or aftermarket ignition system. Requires a switched +12V power supply. In some instances you can tap your stock tachometer RPM signal or ignition coil. Each application will be different, so do your research to find out which approach is best for you. + ATMega328 NANO board + Custom Chippernut Shift Light PCB.
+ Rotary Encoder w/ Aluminum Knob. + 5V 1.5A Buck Converter. + 2 STARCHIP16 APA102C LEDs (32 LEDs total). + I2C OLED Graphic Display.
+ Discrete Components (resistors, capacitor). See last page for installation diagram. Each kit is hand-built per order and bench tested. Please allow an extra 2-3 days of processing time to build your unit and test it. The APA102C LEDs draw approximately 60mA per LED at full-brightness white.Each color (RGB) draws 20mA per LED. The maximum recommended number of LEDs is 25. If you plan to display 100% white. If you know that your application will not require 100% white, either because you choose a different color or reduce the brightness, feel free to order more. Keep in mind, it's common for applications in direct-sunlight (ex: motorcycles) to prefer 100% white during the shift-flasher, as it outputs the most light and is easier to see. Dimensions: 1.5" x 3/8" (39.8mm x 8.4mm). Please note: There is an input and output side. You'll want to connect the first bar to the INPUT side only.
Then connect the output of the first bar to the input of the second bar, if you are linking multiple bars together. If you connect it backwards, there's a good chance you will toast the bar. VCC 5V: 5 Volts DC In. VCC 5V: 5 Volts DC Out.
