LARSON SCANNER 2021 New Larson Scanner is expected soon!
Larson Scanner 2021 is my 4th revision on this very interesting subject Only this was time to add more to it.
It is fun! Need more reason? And new version is also practical!
Instead of using an attiny13 or similar this time I am using an attiny1616 and 16 addressable LED. Besides the Larson Scanner pattern, one can program it with different patterns and there is a push button to select function/patterns. There is more to it though... Onboard the pcb which is same size as previous versions (165x17mm) you will find an I2C ambient light sensor, an I2C temperature sensor & a microphone! On the back you can solder Grove connectors giving access to UART, I2C & GPIO including DAC output. Supplied are right angle PH2.54 connectors but the connections are more or less following Grove ecosystem guidelines It is powered through the mUSB connector but can also use PSU4056L modules same as previous versions. mUSB is also used to access the UPDI programming pin and I even made a programmer to help with this (optional) Larson Scanner is using WS2812C addressable RGB LED for relatively low power consumption.
Using the LED as a bar graph you can use it as a VU Meter, Thermometer, Night Light, indicate various conditions etc. An add on board is on the making which will hold a 14500 Li-Ion or LiFePO4 cell and power management (charger etc.) and possibly a small audio amplifier & speaker to use with the DAC output.
I have also made a simple programmer for the new Larson Scanner as the UPDI is passing through the mUSB port.
LARSON SCANNER 2021 is using attiny1616
Also available with Larson Scanner 2021 UPDI Programmer PSU4056L
