So… now that I’ve completed the first phase of my first FastLED project using a Mega 2560 that I already had on hand (with good results, btw), I’m ready to consider an upgrade.
I’ll want to keep refining my 720-LED wearable panels (10 panels of 72 LEDS each) but am also considering another big project – 30/meter WS2812b’s as exterior Christmas lighting. For smaller projects, I’ll rely on assorted Arduino hardware I already have.
Does anyone have budget-minded recommendations that would be an improvement over the Mega 2560?
Your input is appreciated!
