Learning to control your LEDs with the Fadecandy board – HackSpace Magazine 16

So, you’ve now got your LEDs, whether that’s as individual components, or amassed on a strip or matrix, and you need to control them. There are innumerable ways of doing this with modern hardware, and each method lends itself to different graphical styles. One of the most powerful is the FadeCandy board, developed in partnership by Micah Scott (aka ScanLime) and Adafruit.

There are a couple of things that we think make this board special. The first is that it manages to achieve far more dynamic resolution than other boards by using dithering, and the second is that it uses linear interpolation to achieve a smooth transition between frames. These sound technical, but everything is handled behind the scenes and you get great-looking LED projects easily.
