 {{satellitearray001.jpg?150&nolink  }} The Satellite Module 001 is an 10 LED array of five-chip 100mA wide-angle (140 degree) red, green, and blue LEDs. The percieved output power of the red channel is a little less than the blue and green channels, so there are 4 red, 3 blue, and 3 green LEDs. Each LED supplies ~35,000 mcd over a 140 degree viewing angle. Combine with the ShiftBar  to create a string of super-bright clusters. These are as bright as 15 ShiftBrites on the blue and green, and 20 ShiftBrites on the red channel! {{satellitearray001.jpg?150&nolink  }} The Satellite Module 001 is an 10 LED array of five-chip 100mA wide-angle (140 degree) red, green, and blue LEDs.

 Of course, the easiest way to use the Satellite Module 001 is to use a ShiftBar to drive it. The ShiftBar controls up to 150mA on three channels with 10-bit PWM, and easily connects to the Satellite Module 001 using four wires. Of course, the easiest way to use the Satellite Module 001 is to use a ShiftBar to drive it.
