I have a Mega 2560 and was going to try to power about 7 - 10 individual RGB LEDs, but am now seeing that I don't have enough PWM pins to do what I want. I don't really want to get into shift registers ( actually, am not even sure if the would left me expand the pwm pins ), so am looking at the 12mm Digital RGB LED 25 Strand product in the adaStore:http://www.adafruit.com/products/322
I have a couple of quick questions:
I am mounting the LEDs in a plastic case and was going to use 5mm plastic LED holders to hold them in the case - drill hole, pop in the holder, pop in the LED. Because these LEDs are 12mm, I don't think they will work with my existing holders. Are their holders available for these to mount them in a case?
I don't need all 25 LEDs... only about 10 or so. Can I cut them after the 8th or 10th LED and will they still be functional?
Thanks in advance!!
