You will chirp with delight when you see how easy it is to make your
very own 8x16 LED matrix display for any Feather. This kit combines
two of our adorable miniature LED matrices with a FeatherWing driver
board. At 0.8" square, these little 8x8 matrices have got everything a
big LED matrix has, but bite sized! Double them up for 128 total
bright white LEDs.

This is the White Adafruit 0.8" 8x16 LED Matrix FeatherWing Display
Combo Pack! We Also have these combo packs in Red, Green, and

Normally, wiring up 8x16 matrices would require a breath-taking 24
GPIO pins, which is way too many pins. That's where this lovely 16x8
LED matrix backpack PCB comes in. It contains a HT16K33 I2C LED matrix
driver that does all the multiplexing work for you, and is controlled
over the two I2C pins. It's easy to use, has a portable library that
runs on any of our Feathers to turn on/off each LED.

The 16x8 backpack is also great for making scrolling displays or small
video displays. In our example, we set it up to display small bitmap
emoticons but you can also display text that moves - kind of like a
sign in front of a miniature car dealership.

This kit comes with:

* A fully tested and assembled 16x8 0.8" LED FeatherWing
* 2 x ultra-bright square 8x8 white matrices
* 2 x 16-pin header

A bit of soldering is required to attach the two matrices onto the
FeatherWing but its very easy to do and only takes about 15 minutes.
