Second generation Hyperion controller board, suitable for replacing a damaged controller in a Gen 2 hoop or building your own LED props.
WiFi-capable boards are now available. Gen 2 Bluetooth and WiFi boards are interchangeable, but please note that Gen 1 hoops require extra modifications before they can be upgraded to either version.
Dimensions: 2.9" long x 0.6" wide x 0.29" high
Power requirements: 3 to 5 volts DC, typ. 70 mA
The installed 3-pin 0.1" header is configured for use with WS2812-compatible LEDs. The 4th pin provides a clock signal for APA102, LPD8806, and related LEDs.
The #4-40 clinch nut serves as both the mechanical connection and the positive battery connection. The header pinout, starting from the side nearest XTAL, is as follows:
2: LED data
3: LED power (5 amps max)
4: LED clock (for synchronous type LEDs)
To configure the LED type, set led_type in config.ini to one of the following:
1 for LPD8806
2 for WS2812/SK6812
3 for APA102
5 for SK6812 RGBW
6 for SK6812 RGBY
The rgb_order setting (0-8) can be used to select non-standard color channel orders.
Boards carry the same 2-year warranty as the complete hoops. Remote controls are available separately.
