Kinetic Technologies KTD2061 Evaluation Kit (KTD2061EUAC-MMEV02)

Kinetic Technologies KTD2061 Evaluation Kit (KTD2061EUAC-MMEV02) demonstrates and evaluates the KTD2061 36-Channel RGB LED Drivers with I2C Control functionality, performance, and PCB layout. This evaluation kit is also a convenient tool for software development of RGB LED lighting patterns and animations. The kit includes a fully assembled, tested PCB with the KTD2061 IC installed, a white plastic light diffuser, a wiring harness, and a MicroPython pyboard v1.1 with pre-loaded demo software. Twelve RGB modules (36x LEDs total) are mounted on the back side of the PCB and shine into the diffuser, which blends the light output and reduces human-eye fatigue. The Kinetic Technologies KTD2061 Evaluation Kit also evaluates the KTD2058/59/60 36-channel RGB LED drivers, the KTD2064A/B 24-channel RGB LED drivers, and the KTD2063 12-channel RGB LED drivers.
