can't get it to output 1080p but it's running fine headless. won't get hotter than 45C with the CPU at 1.4/1.8GHz - recommended settings.
this represents a measure of digital independence for me, as I'd pay $10-20/mo for a vps with similar stats. planning to put a 1TB SSD on it with the NVMe hat (not pictured) once I can afford it.

Now on the Cargo-Culted EE Design Hour:
I've found this suggested circuit to drive some LED strips (analog, 5-channel RGB+CCT) with the TLC59711 PWM IC which @catoutofbed recommended to me ages ago.
The IC has nice features which should prevent flicker unlike many others, but it's not designed for driving strips. It's an open-drain device. Thus the workaround.
I have concerns, but no EE skill to know what may be wrong with this. Total current thru each channel shouldn't exceed 500mA, though.
I figure I can stick LED strips to the middle sections there and this would serve both as mounting for the LEDs, plus heat sink.
noob circuit design, lamps
Would anybody care to have a look at my glowy circuit so far?
It's a lamp with three different color temperature LED strips and a single off/on/adjust slider control which varies the brightness of the strips to go from off to warm dim to cold bright.
This is by far the most complex design of the three or four I've made in my life and it's largely cargo culted. I have concerns. Help appreciated. #electronics
