This board plugs into the RaspberryPi GPIO expansion port using the hardware PWM channels to drive the programmable LED pixels using the WS2811 and WS2812 chips. Since there are two PWM channels, the board supports two independent strings of pixels, limited in length by how the program controls them. The board has two connectors for driving each string directly, and supports both 5V and 12V pixels. Four RJ45 jacks provide an interface to end points, where two copies of the pixel string are transmitted, and can support over 100 feet of CAT5 cable. String two is provided on two jacks, while string 1 is dedicated to one port, while the second port can be jumper selected for either string 1 or string 2. The board requires 5V and can be provided by the Pi or externally.
This was designed to allow multiple strings of pixels to be driven by the RaspberryPi.
No other board is currently available to drive this number of separate pixel stings.
