The ChromaTab is a tiny, Arduino compatible, a board that can be soldered directly onto a WS2812B intelligent LED strip.
Based on the Arduino ProMini and built around a ATMEGA329P, the ChromaTab is fully compatible with the Arduino IDE and can be easily updated or customised with new sketches. Sketches can be uploaded via a USB to serial converter. The firmware is based around the Adafruit Neopixel library and so new animations and effects can easily be created.
Measuring just 10mm in width, the ChromaTab can easily fit into the tight spaces you may want to fit lengths of WS2812B strip. The extruded aluminium profiles you can get for mounting LED lighting is one such place you may want to fit these strips with a ChromaTab.
As well as the 3 castellated pads, with a 2.54mm pitch, all the other pin are broken out with 1.27mm pitch holes arranged in 2x 10 way rows, 1x ISP 6 way row and 1x Serial 5 way row.
Included with the board are 2x 10 way, 1x 6 way and 1x 5 way male 1.27mm pitch pin headers
This small pitch allows for systems that need to be kept small and compact. As well as the supplied headers you could also solder standard (1.27mm) ribbon cable directly to the through holes.
There will soon be some add-on boards (Tags) that will be designed to fit on to the 2 10 way headers. These Tags will provide functions such as a USB to serial converter and a VUmeter.
