LED footprint fail is not so bad

A project log for 384:LED

Mini (1.44'' x 0.94'' or 24mm x 37mm) 8X16 RGB LED Array. 128 RGB LEDs with three LED chip each gives 384.

In the last log I did wrote that I did used the wrong footprint for the LEDs. Well it is more the wrong LED for that footprint. The footprint was not a wrong invalid size, I did only used one for a little bit bigger LED. So I do not need to order/design new boards. Ordering new LEDs is cheaper and probably also faster. So both erros are solved by ordering fitting parts.

Awh too bad I was looking forward to seeing you use those small LEDs. What LEDs are you going to use now?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Well I will use LEDs like these:

There will be a other project where I will use the small LEDs. But this is still in a early phase. The good side about the bigger LEDs this the much lower price.
