Well I have made myself a 8 LED segment that flashes to the beat of music with Winamp. It’s fairly straight forward. I started with this tutorial.
Here is the parts list
- 1.5 Volt LED’s (under 30mA)
- 1 Sided circuit board
- 1 Male LPT plug
- 160ohm Resisters
The steps are fairly easy just go through it and you shouldn’t have any problems.
Here are some pictures on the construction of myn.
At first I had lade all the components out onto a bread board where it’s sat there for about a year. Just Yesterday I got the idea of buying a board to stick all the components on. Heres a picture of the before.
This next picture is of all the components soldered onto the board.
Little bit of carpet tape had here it is.
