This wig has 6 Dotstar strips.  Each strip's power and ground wires are wired in parallel (starfish pattern, or lots of little "spokes") and the Clock and Data wires are wired in sequence (serpentine pattern, or one long wire from start to finish).

This means that if one of your clock or data lines comes un-soldered, everything "downstream" of that bad solder joint will stop working.  So be sure your soldering and gluing is rock-solid for this project!

  • Dotstar Clock --> Feather 11
  • Dotstar Data --> Feather 13
  • Dotstar G --> Feather G
  • Dotstar + --> Feather 3v
