one quick question about your drawing. i plan on wiring the red wires to the positive side of the led emitters and the black to the negative side at the end of the string. is this correct? also will the drive work at all without the programming. i would like to see if it will come on even if the dimming doesnt work. i am still waiting on my usb adaptor so i can input the programming.
Yes, RED = Positive, BLACK = Negative. You can turn on the individual driver chips by connecting their respective PWM connection to the 5V OUTPUT screw terminal.
