Desert Bloom Adressable LED Break Out Board
The WS2812 breakout board was a design that came from necessity. The break out board for this LED with embedded controller were too big, had sharp edges and did not have clear labels on both sides of board. I designed a board as small as possible, rounded corners, mounting holes to sew into wearable projects, and clear labels on both sides of the board.
I used a CAD program called Eagle for the schematic capture and PCB design. Once the gerbers were produced I sent them to OSHPARK for fabrication. Upon receipt of the bhardware I hand soldered the components and began testing - they worked!
