Full Color Arduinome: new sparkfun button pads?

  • Came over here fully expecting to see some conversation going regarding sparkfun's latest button pad offering. They just started offering fully populated 4x4 button pads that also include the logic circuit necessary to detect button presses and light up individual LEDs in the color of your choice.

    I'm in the midst of laying out a circuit to drive my RGB-populated sparkfun 4x4s in full color (too bad I didn't wait a few months), but I was wondering if anyone has considered these for the task yet. Some software's involved here, but from my understanding of the logic involved, I don't think it'd be too complicated to get this up and running as a clone.

  • I was looking at those as well, but I think it would essentially require a redesign of the Arduinome project firmware and shield (if that is even necessary). Arduinome 2.0, perhaps?

  • @dovemouse: thx, I guess I should've looked around a bit more.
