    DM160214 is a main board of lighting communications development platform. It uses a PIC16F1947 microcontroller to run the user interface, LCD control, 4 colour LED drive and the various communications protocols. By changing the firmware and plug on the adapter, a number of lighting communication protocols can be implemented, such as DMX512A and DALI.

    The Lighting Communications Development Platform provides a universal lighting development platform for the creation of communications enabled lighting applications. The platform consists of a main board and various communications interface adapters to support in the development of DALI, DMX512A, as well as future protocols.
