The PiPixel provides simplified hookup of digital LED strips to the Raspberry Pi family of single board computers. It uses the standard Pi "HAT" form-factor to provide two easy power input options, data output over the SPI port as well as GPIO 18 and 13 (used for WS2812), along with built-in voltage level shifting to keep your LED strips happy being connected to the 3.3V Pi. No longer will you have a rats-nest of wires and power between your Pi and your LEDs. Slap on the PiPixel, connect power, connect LEDs, and go!
Your PiPixel is a user assembled kit which only requires basic soldering skills and comes with the following components:
We ship the PiPixel with a standard 2x20 Female header as that's what most users are likely to use. But it supports a few other options which we don't currently provide. See the list below for links of where to buy those, should you need them.
