1. Remote LED SPI Controller Introduction
ST805SB is a LED controller that is capable of controlling a variety of single or double-line driver chips with one port and has infrared remote control and nixie tube display functions. ST805SB can control maximum 4096 pixels.
Auxiliary software is “LED Build Software”.
2. Supported Driver Chips
LPD6803, LPD8806, LPD6813, LPD1882, LPD1889, LPD6812, LPD1883, LPD1886, DMX512, HDMX, APA102, UCS6909, UCS6912, UCS1903, UCS1909, UCS1912, WS2801, WS2803, WS2811, WS2812, TM1803, TM1804, TM1809, TM1812, TM1829, TA9912, TM1913, TM1914, TM1916, TM1926, SM16711, INK1003, LX1003, LX2003, LX2006, TLS3001, TLS3002, DZ2809, P9813, P9816, SM16716, LD151x, LD153x, MBI6021, MBI6023, MBI6024, etc.
Note: many chips share the same option in software.
3. Remote LED SPI Controller Performance
(1). One port drives maximum 4096 pixels.
(2). SD card supports FAT32 and FAT16 format, maximum capacity is 32G bytes, stores maximum 64 DAT files, which are played based on file name in alphabetical order.
(3). With infrared remote control and nixie tube display functions.
(4). Switch files, adjust brightness, set clock frequency and play speed with remote control.
4. Operation Instructions
(1). Nixie tube displays “05” after power-on; the right dot will keep flashing if SD card is not detected. Displaying “FE” means controller type is wrong or there are too many pixels. Displaying “F0” means there is no valid DAT file in SD card. Displaying file number “01” means read SD card successfully.
(2). SD card must be formatted into FAT32 or FAT16 format after many times deletion. ST805SB supports SDHC (high capacity SD card), maximum capacity is 32G. SD card can store maximum 64 DAT files, which are played based on file name in alphabetical order.
(3). In “LED Build Software”, choose “one line with a slave”, controller type must select “SB” and the chip type must be selected properly.
(4). Clock frequency and speed are set on controller. Normally, set the clock frequency at 1MHZ, set speed at 25 frames per second
