32 Universe Controller

Motherboard small

This controller is nice to use if you have a lot of small prop’s with power over Ethernet, or for a very large pixel arrays.

Supports 32 outputs of one universe each or 512 channels or 170 pixels (RGB)
Does not support LED matrix panels (not enough memory)
Supports both 5V and 12V strings
High performance controller, no dropped packets, scan rates up to 5mS

Renard serial at 56.7K, 115.2K, 230.4K, 460.8K
DMX (Supports WS2822)
WS2801 and compatible
WS2811 and compatible
TM1804 (untested)
TM1803/TM1809 (untested)
TM1829 (untested)

The firmware was developed in Quartus II, Web Version 9.1. However other versions should be able to read the source code. The top level design has a block that easily allows each of the outputs to be individually configured. The board files are in Eagle Version 5.3.
