LinkM Smart USB LED Controller . LinkM is a USB adapter that addresses two of the most frequently-requested BlinkM features: It enables you to program BlinkMs without setting up a separate I/O board, such as an Arduino. It lets you program or control multiple BlinkMs simultaneously. Plug it in, plug in a BlinkM, fire up the BlinkM Multitrack Sequencer, and start programming BlinkMs. It requires no drivers (when used with most operating systems), additional software or hardware. BlinkM's sold separately.
Quick Start requirements:
  • No electronics experience!
  • No programming experience!
  • Computer with USB port
  • One or more BlinkMs, BlinkM MinMs, BlinkM MaxMs
  • OSX 10.3.9, Windows XP/7, Linux
  • Java 1.5 or later
  • Mulitrack ThingM Sequencer software
  • Quick Start requirements
  • No electronics experience!
  • No programming experience!
  • Computer with USB port
  • One or more BlinkMs, BlinkM MinMs, BlinkM MaxMs
  • OSX 10.3.9, Windows XP/7, Linux
  • Java 1.5 or later
  • Mulitrack ThingM Sequencer software

  • Features:
  • Driverless. Identifies itself as a USB Human Interface (HID) class device, which nearly every operating system supports without requiring additional drivers.
  • Synchronizes groups of BlinkMs with a metronome signal so that their patterns do not drift in time (this even works when the LinkM is only connected to a power supply, such as an iPod USB charger).
  • Can directly power 8 BlinkMs or BlinkM MinMs or one BlinkM MaxM

  • Advanced Features:
  • Works as a generic USB->I2C device, making it compatible with hundreds of standard I2C devices.
  • Contains an I2C buffer chip for driving longer I2C bus cables.
  • Open Source firmware, available from Google Code [LINK]
  • Open Source libraries for C, Java and Processing that work on Mac OS X, Windows XP/7 and Ubuntu Linux, also available from Google Code.
  • Acts as an I2C master with built-in BlinkM metronome for synchronizing groups of BlinkMs so that their patterns do not drift with time
  • Additional I/O pins on the board. AVR hackers can crack open the case to get access to digital I/O pins and use LinkM as a standalone microcontroller platform.
  • Specifications
  • USB 1.0 standard
  • 100 kbps I2C communication
  • 4-pin 0.1" spacing BlinkM I2C connector
