While we already have a great tutorial
and Arduino library
for our handy and easy to use LED backpacks, if you're wondering how you can make use of backpack-enabled LED displays on the Pi, this guide will help you get started!
What You'll Need
- A Raspberry Pi
A Pi Cobbler to make it easy connecting things up
- One of our many 8x8 or 4-Digit 7-Segment backpack-enabled displays
If you're looking for help on how to assemble one of our backpack-enabled LED displays, have a look at our earlier guide, Adafruit LED Backpacks
. It contains a lot of complimentary information on these displays, including step by step soldering and assembly instructions.
