Lighting Elements. Every LED is integrated with a small microcontroller…

The early prototype devices were:

  • 22mm x 9mm
  • individually addressable
  • self-addressing
  • powered and controlled through a two conductor powerline network
  • topology independent
  • 30 frames per second update
  • only four hardware components…

Control Elements. Interconnect networks of lighting elements to form larger displays.

  • 500kbps uplink
  • daisy chained
  • form hierarchies to scale
  • current sensed output
