It took a while but I've finally managed to get the firmware of my new Rainbowduino V3 controllers to a state that I can use them as part of my 512 RGB LED coffee table project. I've learnt a lot of new things about interrupt handling of AVR micro controllers that I didn't want to learn at all and I went trough quite some frustrating weeks where I was very close to just throw those controllers into the trash. But luckily I've managed to get the firmware flying at the end. If you want to find out what obstacles I had to fight with, how it all works at the end and where you can find the Rainbowduino V3 firmware including the matching Java API than feel free to continue reading this blog post 🙂
