This project does not require any soldering, making assembly a straight forward experience.
The NeoSliders work by sending data over I2C with the
adafruit_seesaw CircuitPython library. Since this project uses three of the NeoSliders, you will need to adjust the I2C addresses on two of them by cutting the address jumpers.
The default I2C address for the NeoSlider is 0x30. You will leave one NeoSlider on this address, leaving the address jumpers uncut.
All of the STEMMA boards will be connected to each other using QT to QT cables.
Using a QT to female socket cable, connect the STEMMA boards to the Raspberry Pi.
Connect the QT cable's female socket wires to the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins.
- Red cable (VIN) connects to physical pin 1
- Black cable (GND) connects to physical pin 6
- Blue cable (SDA) connects to physical pin 3
- Yellow cable (SCL) connects to physical pin 5
Using M2.5 screws and stand-offs, mount the components to the mounting board made out of your chosen material.
Attach the NeoSliders to the stand-offs with screws. The order going left to right is 0x30, 0x31 and 0x32.
0x30 and 0x31's QT cable should be on the top. 0x31 and 0x32's QT cable should be on the bottom.
Attach the VL53L4CD to its stand-offs with screws. Run its QT cables around the stand-offs so that the cabling is hidden under the VL53L4CD and Raspberry Pi.
Now you're ready to get video synthesizing!
