ACRIS LED Bootloader Ready!

The last major hurdle for the LED controller is finally done. I’ve finished designing a bootloader that allows you to program the device over the RS-485 network, thereby eliminating the difficulties I had originally experienced with in-circuit JTAG programming. I’ve also finished a Python library and application that makes working with the bootloader quite easy.

I just need to do one final verification of the LED controller boards and then I’ll order some. After that, it’s just a matter of assembly and writing some programs to control the colors of the system.
