About the article


With remote control!

Although the technology has been around for a while, RGB LED lamps are still state of the art for interior lighting. Traditional incandescent light sources found in night clubs, stage lighting, car instrument panels and interior room lighting have all benefited from a semi-conductor makeover. Here we add the convenience of a ready made hand-held remote controller.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
