ANAVI Miracle Controller is Here!

ANAVI Miracle Controller is finally here! It is a user-friendly and an entirely open source solution for addressable LED strips at an affordable price.

Inspiration

In 2018 we created ANAVI Light Controller for standard non-addressable 12V LED strips. People enjoyed it and we received numerous inquiries for a similar open source development board for 5V and 12V addressable LED strips like NeoPixels, WS2811, WS2812, TM1804, etc. This inspired the creation of ANAVI Miracle Controller.

ANAVI Miracle Controller was designed in June and July 2019. After that, we spent some time on testing and working on the default Arduino sketch. It is based on numerous popular Arduino libraries such as FastLED, WiFiManager, ArduinoJson and PubSubClient. You will find a lot of similarities if you are familiar with other previous open source projects like ANAVI Thermometer, ANAVI Gas Detector and ANAVI Light Controller.

On July 14, 2019 Open Source Hardware Association certified version 1.1 ANAVI Miracle Controller under UID BG000050. Since September we have been planning the crowdfunding campaign with Crowd Supply.

Entirely Open Source

ANAVI Miracle Controller combines open source hardware with free and open source software. The source code and the schematics are already available at public GitHub repositories.

Does it make any sense to make open source hardware with expensive proprietary tools? In my personal options - no. There are a lot of high-quality open source tools on the market which allow makes to unleash their creativity. As an open source enthusiast I insisted to use only free and open source software tools like KiCAD and OpenSCAD during the design of the printed-circuit board and the acrylic case.

We Need Your Help

We are ready for manufacturing and now we need your support. We hope you’ll jump in and help us bring this entirely open source project to life!

Thanks,
Leon
