Maestro and Shiftbrite

I searched the answer for this question but could not find a definite number.

What would be the maximum flashing rate of this setup:

One Maestro running the RGB code alternating between 1023 and 0 hooked up to 12 shiftbrites.

I hope this makes any sense.



I took some measurements here and it takes about 55ms for the Mini Maestro 24-Channel to update the R, G, and B values and latch them in on a single ShiftBrite using the demo code in our Maestro User’s Guide. To update the entire string of 12 would take about 660ms, though you could do something faster if you reuse the values sent to LEDs earlier in the chain since these work like shift registers.


Thanks for the info!
