LED Cube Operation

When powering up the LED Cube, it can be in one of two modi:

  • Bootloader Mode: In the bootloader mode, the LED Cube will enumerate at the USB Host it is connected to. You are then able to transfer a new application to the LED Cube.
  • Application Mode: In this case, the application that has been loaded last time when the LED Cube was in the bootloader mode will start.

The mode the LED cube will start in is set by the bootloader jumper. When it is on the left side, the LED Cube will be in the bootloader mode after startup.

If, on the other hand, it is on the right two pins or completely removed, The LED Cube will enter the application mode.
