I gave up on trying to drive the A6280 directly with the Arduino. macetech.com already did what I wanted but couldn’t do myself. They used the A6281 (which doesn’t come in a DIP package- only an SMC) on a nice little breakout board with a RGB LED. Yea!
So here’s the Module.It worked perfectly and at $5 how can you argue? I got three so I’ll have a few on hand.
I’ll post the code update for the LCC shortly. It’s been running live for a few days and works great. It’s nice to see that the lights are off because of a temp condition (RED LED active) as opposed to some other issue.
