Thanks for the infos DavidEF. I hope this new driver project will work out. It would make some new things possible. Nice to know that they work on new hardware!
And infos how far they are? Or if it is looking good so far?
I really love toykeepers work (and i am thankfull she invested so much time in it) but with the new low vf leds and more new things comming, the driver hardware designs we have now are reaching its limits sometimes.
Some new Anduril compatible drivers would be really nice.

Well, loneoceans is planning to build a new buck/boost or switching driver and is asking for suggestions HERE. I have already suggested that he make it compatible with Anduril or Narsil, and I think he will. But I also asked if he would use a more modern MCU and port one of those firmware choices to it, and he said it is outside the scope of his project. Still, having a good buck/boost driver compatible with BLF firmware will help with those low Vf emitters.

@DavidEF
I checked the loneoceans project. It is really interesting. Narsil or Anduril would be a huge + . It is a pain to have to many lights with so different UIs.
To bad he will not go for a new mcu. Using a new mcu would open up way more option. But i take what i get Cool
But that is still not helping with the idea i have in mind. Will have to push it untill we have something new.

To change from the above discussion, I’ve been looking for a ramping, constant current driver with a maximum in the range of 700-1000mA for modding some small scale video lighting. This may exist somewhere but, if so, it’s proving difficult to find. There are ramping PWM drivers and there are constant current drivers with modes but they all seem to be for a 2+ amp minimum.

A 17mm buck for 1×18650 would be nice but mostly I’m just looking for something which makes it easy to step through outputs compared to soldering and desoldering 7135s. Something as simple as cycling through 100, 250, 400, 550, and 700mA modes would probably be plenty fine.

Anyone know of something like this or which could be reconfigured to do something close?
