Looking for an unashamedly old school LED matrix display board? Lookie here! The Pimoroni Micro Dot pHAT is made up of six red LED matrices, each 5×7 pixels (for an effective display area of 30×7) plus a decimal point, using the beautiful little Lite-On LTP-305 matrices.
Perfect for building a retro scrolling message display, a tiny 30-band spectrum analyzer, or a retro clock. Far out!
As with the other pHATs, it works with all of the 40-pin Raspberry Pi variants – 3/2/B+/A+/Zero – but using it with the Pi Zero makes for a super-tiny package.
3x onboard IS31FL3730 LED matrix driver chips
Drives up to 6 x LTP-305 red LED matrices
Up to 30×7 pixels (5×7 per matrix plus a decimal point)
Assembled Micro Dot pHAT PCB
2×20 0.1″ female GPIO header
6 Red LTP-305 LED modules
Micro Dot pHAT also works well with other pHATs and HATs. You could use it in combination with pHAT DAC to display the audio spectrum, or with Enviro pHAT to display its temperature, pressure and light readings. Give it a try!
Note: These pHAT boards require you to solder on the headers and LTP-305 modules (through-hole components). Works with any 40-pin Raspberry Pi variant.
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.
