Hi Joe.

Thanks for the clarifications.

I'm updating a 160 LED multicolor strip (which requires about 480 8-bit bytes to be sent for a full refresh).

In theory, at 76 KHz I can update the entire strip in 50 mS. 

In practice I need to put about 60mS pause between update bursts.

Seems to be working pretty well, even though I'd love to be able to go faster

Unfortunately that's the limit on the particular hardware configuration we use for FRC.
