Controlling RGB LEDs on a Nano Controller via the FAST Serial Protocol

FAST Serial Protocol: Overview & First Steps

This documentation section is about the FAST Serial Protocol (FSP) commands, which are the low-level commands a host computer sends to a FAST board. Most FAST Pinball makers do not need to know about these details, since the pinball game framework (such as the Mission Pinball Framework) handles this communication for you.

If you're writing your own game framework, read the overview of how FSP works and how to connect first.

The legacy RGB commands are used with LEDs attached to the ports on a FAST Nano Controller. (Note that LEDs attached to the Neuron or other Expansion Boards are controlled via the EXP Bus connection and use EXP commands, not these RGB commands.)

There are commands to set the color of individual LEDs or all LEDs.
