LED Controller such as Sparky Jr or Spark PWM SMD or FGWidget LED Controller is not needed for LED Butons.
The LED Controller is only needed for if you want cool effects happen to the LED.
If all you want is Light on Press, then LED Controller is not needed.
Uila and KNsert can work with Sparky PWM SMD.
Uila and KNsert can work with FGWidget LED Controller.
Uila will not get full use of colors with FGWidget LED Controller.
As the FGWidget LED Controller can only do one channel of color.
So for RGB, you can get Red or Green or Blue or Cyan or Magenta or Yellow or White.
KNsert will not get full use of Sparky PWM SMD.
Since KNsert is only white LED, there are no colors for Sparky PWM SMD to do.
The only thing Sparky PWM SMD can do to KNsert is brighten or dim the white LED.
Uila with Sparky PWM SMD and ArcEye II with Sparky Jr are the only plug and play.
Wouldn’t I still need a controller if I’m going to use the “Light On Button Press”? I’m sure the Sparky PWM has it so that when the single lead from the button goes through the PCB it registers and sends power to the LED correct?
Yeah that would be great. I’m planning on going to evo and I wanna have a fight stick worth showing off. Planning on getting a Hori fighting edge or a Razer Arcade stick once those go out. But theres always this issue of LEDs not being able to fit in sanwa buttons without modification. And from what I’ve heard the Sparky is prolly the best controller on the market right now.
Its solderless right? I think the FGWidget needs the pins soldered onto the PCB
sure there are LED’s for 24 mm buttons,
those are normal 5mm or 3mm LED’s that you drill a hole and glue to the button
as for LED button board inserts, no
you’d have to do a lot of modification to an existing KNinsert by shaving them down, and putting the LED closer to the center to every one you need to have done
