Parallely feeding 16 SPI LED strips with a Raspberry Pi.

This is the hardware and library separated out of the FlaschenTaschen project to be used independently.

This provides a Raspberry Pi Adapter to connect up to 16 SPI-type LED strips (such as APA102, WS2801, LDP6803), that are fed by the Raspberry Pi in parallel for fast update rates.

The C++ library can be found in include/ and lib/, with examples in the, you guessed it, examples/ directory.

You find the board in the hardware/ directory.

The adpater is compatible with any Raspberry Pi with 40 GPIO pins, such as the Pi 1 B+, Pi 2 or Pi 3.

Of course, you can use the MultiSPI feature to send data to other simple devices.
