  3. Tyler Blair Project objectives and purpose Primary Objective: • Construct an 8x8x8 RGB LED cube with a programmable controller • Controller will come with a preset demo as well as the ability to receive custom programs from the user. • The LED cube will provide a 3D display for the programmable content and will function as a “3D Simulator”

  4. Tyler Blair Extensions • The controller will interface with computer software such as matlab. This would allow the user to easily plot 3d functions on the cube. • The controller will have orientation modification capabilities on board. This would provide the user with the ability to zoom, shift or rotate the image. • The controller can wirelessly communicate with other wireless devices (smart-phones, computers, ect.)

  5. Ararat Adamian Outline of the Approach • Computer (or flash-drive or WiFi shield) provides micro-controller with data file • Micro-controller communicates with the shift-registers how and which LEDs to light • Shift registers output to the 8 LED strip.

  6. Ararat Adamian Block Diagram Note: The shift registers will control each plane of 8*8 RGB LED’s. Only one plane will be on at a time, the illusion of all the planes being on will be from very rapidly switching planes.

  7. Ararat Adamian Implementation • Micro-controller: • Atmega328 that will communicate with computer through USB • Line controller: • Array of 74HC595 shift registers with latch-able output • 8x8x8 LED cube: • 512 “540R2GBC-CC” RGB common cathode LEDs • LEDs will be mounted on thin plexiglass

  8. Ararat Adamian Implementation Alternatives • Micro-controller: • Atmega1280 – More I/O pins and faster • Line controller: • Max7219 matrix controller in combination with AND gates • MSP430 micro-controller for each line of LEDs • 8x8x8 LED cube: • 512 Single Color LEDs • LEDs will be mounted in tubes

  9. Adrian Williams Division of Labor • LED cube will be split into 8 planes of 64 LEDs (8x8), two group members will construct individual planes • One group member will design the PCB for the micro-controller and Line-controller circuits. • One group member will work on firmware to interface between computer and shift registers

  14. Brian McDonald Risks • Project is heavily hardware orientated • Time constraints • Feasibility of extensions • Unfamiliarity with WiFi technology • Power requirements • Heat dissipation • LEDs are too bright or not bright enough

  15. Brian McDonald Critical points • CDR -All Parts received, PCB designed and ordered, 8x8 RBG plane constructed and tested with simple graphics, Cube is being built and Micro-controller being programmed for 3D implementation • Milestone 1 -Cube is fully assembled, Micro-controller is programmed and ready to receive input from software/wireless/USB device, Power Supply is nearly finished, Cube is being tested • Milestone 2 -All Hardware is completely built and tested, Software is being designed to interface with cube, USB/Wireless interfaces are being built, Documentation is being completed • Expo - awesome
