|1031_0 - PhidgetLED-64 Advanced - Discontinued|
This Phidget controls the brightness of up to 64 LEDs.
Replaced by the 1032 - PhidgetLED-64 Advanced.
The PhidgetLED 64 allows you to independently control 64 Light Emitting Diodes. Each LED can be turned on and off, and its brightness controlled.
Most standard LEDs with colors such as red, amber, orange, yellow, and green have forward voltages below 2.75 Volts, and can be used with the PhidgetLED by simply soldering them to a connector-wire and inserting the wire into any PhidgetLED board connector. The forward voltage will default to 2.75V, and the maximum current defaults to 20mA.

The 1031 is capable of adjusting the forward voltage supplied to the LEDs with 1.7, 2.75, 3.9 and 5 volts settings allowing you to properly drive blue, white, violet, ultra violet and purple LEDs.
Bi-color LEDs, tri-color LEDs, seven-segment displays, bar LEDs, and other array-style arrangements of LEDs can also be used with the 1031.
The maximum current can be set to 20, 40, 60 or 80mA, and applies to all LEDs. The API allows the brightness control of individual LEDs.
