MicroPython Hardware: LED Backpacks & FeatherWings is a new guide in the learning system:
LED backpacks are bright and beautiful LED displays with a built-in controller chip that makes them super easy to use. These displays come in all sorts of varieties, like matrices that are a grid of LED pixels or segment displays that can show numbers and characters. Because these displays use LEDs they’re bright and easy to read–perfect for showing simple measurements, time, basic graphics, and more. And now you can use LED backpack displays with MicroPython and a LED backpack MicroPython module! This guide explores how to use LED matrix, 7-segment, and 14-segment quad alphanumeric displays with MicroPython.
