So, having been doing a bit of work with Teensy and LEDs for a performance artist friend, I saw Paul’s work on getting the WS2811 LEDs working through DMA. I thought that I would have a play with his OctoWS2811 library and wanted to produce some scrolling text for a festival I’m going to later in the year. I found plenty of scrolling text examples, but very little for using WS2811, so I finally managed to get it up and running. I will post some code shortly. Here’s a video of how it looks.
This is my first post/blog, so hope it works
