The Great Search: Chain LED Matrices with IDC Cables #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey @Adafruit
The Great Search is a new series of videos focused on searching the Digi-Key catalog to narrow down to the parts you want to buy. This week (video):
RGB Matrices have IDC cables that chain the shifted data down, you can get custom IDC cables in any configuration you can dream of from Digi-Key. We’ll show you how and point out some of the things to watch for when getting IDC cables like polarizing keys, strain reliefs, and more!
