Sparky Jr. is a programmable RGB LED mod companion light-up activation controller for arcade pushbuttons. 2 parts software, 1 part hardware, the Sparky Jr. is a unique interface and an extendable platform with a unique combination of Arduino, Processing and RGB LEDs.

Eugene Andruszczenko (32teeth) walks us through the ideation, creation and realization of leveraging OpenSource Hardware and Software through to product development.

  • 12. SparkyJr. RGB LED Controller 32teeth eugeneyevhen 32teeth.github.io in/32teeth whatisthe SparkyJr. the backstory
  • 13. a few years ago…
  • 14. i joined a fightclub
  • 15. i got myself a fightstick
  • 16. i got myself a fightsticki met some people with ideas
  • 17. the birth of an open source product
  • 18. SparkyJr. RGB LED Controller 32teeth eugeneyevhen 32teeth.github.io in/32teeth SparkyJr. a programmable RGB LED mod companion light up activation controller for arcade pushbuttons on gaming fightsticks

  • 21. interlude
  • 22. a challenge has entered the ring
  • 23. SparkyJr. RGB LED Controller 32teeth eugeneyevhen 32teeth.github.io in/32teeth challenge. low barriers to participation keep costs low (under $25) core hardware only shift registers LED driver IC simple interface for non tech savvy folk open source FTW!
  • 24. cont(str)ain yourself
  • 25. SparkyJr. RGB LED Controller 32teeth eugeneyevhen 32teeth.github.io in/32teeth limits. atmega328[p][au][nd] only has 20 I/O 6 of which are PWM common arcade controllers have 8 face buttons 8 RGB LEDs = 24 lines (1 common, 1 per color) that’s 32 lines 12 more than we have [facepalm] this was our "'oh sh1t" moment this was our "awwwwwww sh111111111t" moment
  • 26. work with what you have
  • 27. SparkyJr. RGB LED Controller 32teeth eugeneyevhen 32teeth.github.io in/32teeth approach. 8 I/O for button inputs multiplex the rest 8 I/O for LED common line (anode/cathode) 3 I/O for colors (red, green, blue) row column scanning… …really really fast (no flicker) port manipulation faster than digitalWrite hello timers aka TCCR (Timer/Counter Control Register) TCCR0B = TCCR0B & 0b1111000 | 0x01; millis() and delay() TCCR1B = TCCR1B & 0b1111000 | 0x01; TCCR2B = TCCR2B & 0b1111000 | 0x01; PORTD = B1010010
