RGBW COB LED driver board

Modern Device >>           We created a board for driving  RGBW COB (Chip-On-Board) LEDs. We also sourced some RGBW (red, green, blue, white) COB LEDs, and heatsinks to put together a complete LED lamp kit. The drivers are constant-current source drivers based up the same topology as a buck switching regulator, so there is very little heat generated...

Wind Sensor Creative Applications

Modern Device >> We don’t always get to hear about what our customers create with our products, so when they reach out to us we are always giddy to see what they cook up. Key to Escape, an Escape Room based in North Carolina, put our Wind Sensor Rev. C’s in some prop LED candles and made them react to the user’s breath. By blowing out the candles...

Getting Started with the Reverbalizer
