RGB Pixel Wings

The NeoPixel FeatherWing requires only one pin, and works with any Feather - although you may need to change the pin used by soldering the bottom jumper. You can use as many as you like, by assigning a different pin to each FeatherWing - just watch out for your power usage!

Pros:

  • Blindingly bright RGB pixels! So much color!
  • Familiar NeoPixels are well known, lots of example code available for all chips
  • Uses only one pin for all of the LEDs

Cons:

  • Somewhat low resolution display, 4x8 pixels
  • Can be power hungry, up go 35mA per pixel at full white - so proper programming is essential
  • LEDs are powered off of USB/LiPo, so disabling the Feather via the EN pin will not disable the NeoPixels.
