Yay another page skeleton.

The AC dimmer board was design for Rush 2011 to control ~35 strands of christmas lights in sync with music. It consists of 6 triacs, and a zero crossing detector that enables them all to be dimmed by software. The board has an RJ-45 connector that accepts DMX input, and shares a pinout with the CKs. The DMX channel mappings are hard coded, and require recompilation to change.
