The diagram below provides a visual reference for wiring of the components. This diagram was created using the software package Fritzing.

Adafruit Library for Fritzing

Use Adafruit's Fritzing parts library to create circuit diagrams for your projects. Download the library or just grab individual parts. Get the library and parts from GitHub - Adafruit Fritzing Parts.

Wired Connections

The project uses a 60/m NeoPixel strip with a total count of 8x NeoPixel LEDs.

NeoPixel Strip to QT Py RP2040

  • DIN from NeoPixel strip to Pin A0 on QT Py
  • 5V from NeoPixel strip to 5V on QT Py
  • GND from NeoPixel strip to GND on QT Py

Powering

The Adafruit board can be powered via USB or JST using a 3.7v lipo battery. In this project, a 5V power supply is used. If a lipo battery is being used, it can be rechargeable over the USB-C port on the QT Py RP2040.
