Now legal for both FTC and FRC! Blinkin makes adding LEDs to your robot as simple as driving a motor. Chose the pattern you want and give it the corresponding PWM signal.

The REV Robotics Blinkin LED Driver is a compact LED driver module that simplifies controlling both 12V RGB LED and 5V individually-addressable WS2812 LED strips.  Blinkin combines internal LED drivers, a 5V power source, and a pre-programmed controller all in one package.

Each of the 100 preloaded patterns can be customized to create just the look you want. Adjust the speed, density, and brightness or set up a custom 2-color palette that suits your team's identity. No specialized programming is required to set-up or use the Blinkin LED Driver. Just look up the pattern you want and provide the standard servo-style PWM pulse to actively control which pattern is being displayed.

Selecting a display pattern is as simple as controlling a motor or servo:
