Using shift registers to reduce size and BOM in LED designs

Shift registers can help reduce size and BOM in designs that use LEDs. By providing I/O expansion, they enable the use of smaller, less expensive microcontrollers.
In some cases, the shift register can be used to drive the LED directly and thus eliminate the need for external LED drivers. This adds to the savings, and makes it possible to drive a wider variety of LEDs.
