Pixyexpert (a Ws2812b Driver)
About the project
this is a kit that teaches smd soldering with some IOT . The assembly of the kit is very easy and the result is very much charming.
Items used in this project
What is it?
This is a PIXYEXPERT (named because it drives neopixel leds)that makes interface of esp8266 and WS2812B in easy way .. this board is easy to solder since it consists of all THT components except the esp8266 module and ams1117..
Why did you make it?
The reason to design such board is to integrate THT & SMD components for a solder teach with some IOT and Fun. this kit is build as engineer friendly which brings colorful life to the engineer. Also this kit will teach the engineer
1) how to program the esp8266MOD without any usb or Dev board like arduino or nodemcu
2) The bare minimum configuration for the ESP8266MOD so that he could develop IOT projects with ESP8266MOD rather than the Nodemcu or any other development board.
3) how to code the ws2812b leds with different designs and patterns. for example: The ws2812fx library.
components needed for the project!!
Esp8266MOD or ESP8266 12F MODULE check pcbway gift shop
ESP 8266 - 12 F is the enhanced version of ESP 8266 - 12.
External power lines, quadruple board boards, better signaling exports.Enhanced version is fully compatible with the previous firmware. and on the basis of the pin in the ESP-12, the addition of six IO port and SPI port.
Model: ESP8266-12 F
Frequency range: 2.4GHz-2.5GHz
Operating voltage: 3.0 - 3.6V
Wireless standards: 802.11 b / g / n
Working Current: Average: 80mA
Operating temperature: -40 ° - 125 °
1.Due to the hand measurement, there have size error about 1-2cm or more.
2.Please be reminded that due to lighting effects and monitor's brightness/contrast settings etc, the color tone of the photo and the actual item could be slightly different.
Capacitor : 10uF and 100uF
resistor : 10k
This power supply module is based on the AMS1117 3.3V regulator. It is capable of regulating a wide range of input voltage (4.0 to 12V) down to a fixed 3.3V output at up to 1A (Vin = 4.5V). Standard 0.1″ header pins provide a means of connecting to its input and output terminals.
These header pins have also been conveniently placed so that the module can be inserted face down into standard
Note: Do not exceed absolute maximum input voltage (12.5V) or output current. Exceeding maximum specifications can result in permanent damage to this module or any connected devices.
components that are required to build the project
WS2812b RGB leds aka NEOPIXEL leds
Hope you enjoyed making the project . you could get this project as a kit on my tindie store. (there is a delay faced in the stock fillup due to the shipments service in pandemic)
you could order the pcbs for the project from Pcbway.com
If you purchase the kit it would be helpful to me and i appreciate that because it will help me get a cup of coffee or some components for my future projects.. and i always send gifts to my supporters as a token of thanks..
do follow me as i add updates about the project and relevant links in the comment of each projects.
stay safe stay tuned
