This component has already been created so you can spend your time coming up with cool patterns to dazzle your friends and relatives. We have included a PSoC Creator Workspace that includes the StripLights library (for the WS2811/12) and a couple of example projects to give you an idea of how to use the component. Both projects are built for the PSoC 4200 family, but you can change the project to use either PSoC 3 or PSoC 5LP. Project “P4_OneRing” controls a single ring of these LED modules. The second project “P4_MultiRings”, allows you to string multiple rings together to make your own very cool string of circular lighted ornaments. You can find the download here.
You are not limited to rings of lights with this library or the examples, you can use any combination of the LEDs to do whatever you want from Adafruit.com. Snag the deal for yourself or your special someone to tinker. With the holiday season upon us, just imagine what you can do! Watch the Cypress blog for sale details coming to you Friday 11/28.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
