Hi,
We need to control 64 tri-color LED’s ( 192 discrete LED’s, cathodes not common connected ) and know that we can use three LED64 LED controller board to do this. However, I do not know if I can address multiple LED64 controllers from the same Phidget API / program. Is this possible?
Ideally, we want to be able to program control all 192 individual LED’s from one running program ( across 3 LED64 controllers). Less ideally is to have three instances of the program control individual LED64 controllers. Please advise…

So long as each tri-color LED has three separate anodes/cathodes, then you should be good. You can address each LED separately in code. Additionally, each LED64 is uniquely identified in code, so you can have multiple LED64's connected to the same computer all running under the same application. Each LED64 would have it's own separate object, and, using the Open command on each object, you will pass each LED64's ID number for unique identification.
