    you don't need two chips for this.  Allegro and Toshiba both make combination shift register and constant current driver chips made for driving LEDs (and the constant current drive ensures equal brightness even if the LEDs are mismatched).

    I ran across your site by accident I think I may be glad I did, if you can help I would love it, nobody so far has.  I want to take the tiny light like shown on your site and connect it to outdoor low voltage lights.  It would be easier to explain like this.  I have the outdoor malibu lights like you buy at home depot, the low voltage wire is ran around the garden with the low voltage lights connected to the main line, which is connected to the transformer, these light  are 7 watt others are 11 are still to bright.  I would like to connect the tiny lights to this line how do I do this? I want to add bits of interest in bushes here and there. Kind of like maybe fireflies that do not blink.  Individual ones.
