This diagram uses the original Gemma but you can also use the Gemma M0 with the exact same wiring!

LED Strip:

  • Gemma Vout -> +5v
  • Gemma D1 -> DI (or DIN on some strips)
  • Gemma GND -> GND

Membrane LED Keypad:

  • Gemma GND -> Center pin
  • Gemma D2 -> Left pin
Note: some generations of NeoPixel strip have their 5V/GND/DI pins in a different order. ALWAYS USE THE PIN LABELS PRINTED ON THE STRIP, don’t just blindly follow the physical order shown in the wiring diagram!
