5v addressable SPI strip without LEDs?

Does this exist? Looking for a strip that would allow me to attach 5v addressable solder connections. I’m looking to control power to 50 5v 1/8th watt devices without moving up to full relays.


It sounds like what you want a 50 channel power switch that you can control from a single SPI port. If that is correct, I recommend searching for terms like “SPI power switch” or “multichannel SPI power switch”. That brought up lots of results for me. You might also be able to use an SPI GPIO expander with a bunch of MOSFETs.

We do not have any current plans for a product like that. Thanks for the suggestion, we will keep it in mind.
