The brainboard-32-8L has been based on the Espressif ESP32 (see full specifications here). This makes it compatible with various software out there such as WLED or ESPixelstick or if you wish you can run your own code on the board.
Unlike on my other boards GPIO5 is not used for Ethernet power but used as an LED output. There is no software Ethernet power, instead a physical jumper is present if you want to disable the Ethernet circuit.
*Currently this requires altering the WLED Ethernet profile for the QuinLED-ESP32 changing that power pin from 5 to “-1”. Starting WLED v0.14 there will be a separate “QuinLED-Dig-Octa” Ethernet definition included! For now, please use the version from the getting started guide. Or flash to WLED 0.14.1 using https://install.quinled.info for a pre-configured version!
To configure it all you’ll need to know what is logically connected to the physical ports. Please see the below table for this information:
