Kinetic Technologies KTD2052 Evaluation Kit

Kinetic Technologies KTD2052 Evaluation Kit demonstrates and evaluates the KTD2052 12-Channel RGB LED Drivers 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 KTD2052A IC installed, a wiring harness, and an Adafruit QT Py RP2040 µC board configured for CircuitPython with pre-loaded KTD2052A demo software. Four RGB modules (twelve LEDs total) are mounted on the PCB and shine at a moderate brightness setting to reduce human-eye fatigue. The Kinetic Technologies KTD2052 Evaluation Kit may also be used to evaluate the KTD2052B/C/D 12-channel RGB LED drivers with minor modifications to the demo software.
