Building the Circuit

Solder 4 pieces of the the NeoPixel 1/4 60 Ring together, connecting GND to GND, 5V to 5V and DIN to DOUT. Butt the ends together and use a small piece of stripped wire as a 'bridge' to give some mechanical support

Leave one pair of DIN and DOUT disconnected- this will be where the NeoPixel strand begins and ends.

The ring is very delicate! So please mount onto a backing or use care when moving around!

Note that the diagram above depicts a NeoPixel Ring with 24 NeoPixels, but the same principal applies!

NeoPixel Ring connects as follows:

  • +5V → 5V on Arduino or USB on Trinket (red wire)
  • GND → GND on Arduino (black wire)
  • DIN → Digital 3 on Arduino (blue wire)

DS1307 connects as follows:

  • +5V → 5V on Arduino (red wire)
  • GND → GND on Arduino (black wire)
  • SDA → Analog 4 on Arduino or #0 on Trinket (green wire) 
  • SCL → Analog 5 on Arduino or #2 on Trinket (orange wire) 

 Assemble the DS1307 breakout following these instructions.
