APA102 trouble
« on: November 18, 2017, 02:33:50 pm »
Hi,

I'm trying to use FastLED to drive an APA102-Strip with the oak. What pins are the best ones to use? I'm having trouble to get this work on any of the PWM-Pins. Does anybody have a recommendation to me?

Thanks,

Philipp

Solved by myself  :)

3,3V is not enough for 5V logic, so introducing the right LevelShifter helped a lot :)
Using Pin 0 for Data, Pin 2 for Clock. Works like a charm with FastLED. The SPI Pins however seemed not be recognized by FastLED.

Best regards,

Philipp
