I am wanting to program an addressable LED strip and was wanting to be pointed in the right direction.
* This is NOT a finiished project so does not belong in the Projects forum. Until told otherwise I will assume you are using one of the ATMega microcontrollers and shift this thread to that forum. *
I am wanting to do this on C as a learning exercise but don't quite know where to start. I am using the SK6812 LED strip and are wanting to control round 18 rgb leds.
The data sheet doesn't state any kind of communication protocol just as I2C etc but I am unsure on how to code 24 bits onto a digital pin. I have tried looking at polou on github (https://github.com/pololu/pololu...) but it seems quite intense to understand.
If anyone has done this before and would want to share how to turn on or control 1 led that would be helpful to begin.
