The minimum to make a DMX board, is a board that has a UART that can run at 250Kbps. Microchip has some Application notes that specify a method to recieve and transmit DMX data. See PIC DMX Development

Existing Projects

  • AC Dimmer Board - supports a 485 UART, and dimming 6 AC loads. Currently the first revision of the board has a few issues. A new revision is in the works.
  • USB DMX Board - Wow, this one exists... will post schematics soon
