Neopixel + car + nano

by Mikey8567 on Wed Jan 03, 2018 12:23 pm

Looking at building a car project for a friend. He wants a Night Rider look for his front grill. I already have the Adruino code for it and neopixel's up and running but looking for a power solution for the 12-14.5 VDC power system that car has. I found this ---> https://www.adafruit.com/product/1385 Beings it basically a BEC would it power the nano and 30 pixels? If I had to I could use two of them, 1 for nano and one for the pixel's them self's.

OK I did some research and found the Nano can take unregulated 6-20 VDC power in via pin 30 and the GRD pin and use the on board regulator to provide the board with the 5 VDC it needs to run. I will use the 5V BEC to run the Neopixel's though.
