SPI Pixels – Control 16 LED strips at once with a Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From hzeller on GitHub.

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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
