The LIA-2 Stack is a method of combining several LIA-2 boards into larger systems. The design is sturdy and protective; a sandwich of machined HDPE and LIA-2 1.05's. This example shows a 40 channel system primarily designed to power the 5mm variety of LEDs. There's a separate connector for each LED and power is supplied by a USB cell phone charger.
I created these Neon Dread Puffs for my wife sometime in 2010. They are made with LIA-1 v1.08 (designed for remote LED's), some "Dread Falls" purchased online, and clam shell hair clips. Each half/side has its own LIA-1 unit driving 8 LED's woven into the dread falls. The two halves are linked by a communication cable to synchronize the units. The pictures are post Burning Man, so the puffs are a little dusty.
This was built for one of our customers. It is a kit designed to be installed to a custom gaming PC. The LIA system is installed to a 5.25" drive bay on a 3.5" floppy drive mounting adapter. A microphone and control button are installed into the 5.25" bay cover. A 4-pin Molex is used to power the LIA from the computers' power supply. The lights consist of five 6"-9" strips of RGB LED embedded in a sheet of acrylic that sits under the computer tower and three 16" pieces of LED tape for installation anywhere inside the tower. This video demonstrates sound reaction mode, but it also includes morph mode like all other LIA devices.
RGB LED's are available in many configurations. The variations include viewing angle, size, and mounting scheme. Most LIA hardware can support common anode (common +) or common cathode (common -) LED types and the wire connections to red, green and blue are configurable in software. Basically any 4 pin RGB LED can be used with a LIA system. Some Common LED types:
