Put on your sunglasses before putting this shield onto your 'duino -
40 eye-blistering RGB LEDs adorn the NeoPixel shield for a blast of
configurable color. Arranged in a 5x8 matrix, each pixel is
individually addressable. Only one pin (Digital #6) is required to
control all the LEDs. You can cut a trace and use nearly any other pin
if you need some customization.
To make it easy to start, the LEDs are powered from the 5v onboard
Arduino supply. As long as you aren't lighting up all the pixels full
power white that should be fine. You can also solder in the included
terminal block (pro-tip: put it on the bottom of the board so it
doesn't stick up) to attach an external 4-6VDC power supply. There's a
polarity protection FET on there in case you wire the power backwards
(we would never do that, it was, umm, a friend of ours, yeah that's
If, say, you need MORE blinky, you can chain these together. For the
second shield, connect the DIN connection to the first shield's DOUT.
Also connect a ground pin together and power with 5V. There you go!
You can chain as many as you'd like although after 5 or more shields
you may run low on RAM if you're using an UNO.
We include both stacking headers and plain headers. Use whichever you
prefer - there isn't a lot of space left over for the 'duino pin
breakouts so if you want to wire up some other outputs or sensors the
stacking headers are good. For a slim sturdy look, solder on the plain
headers. Once thats done, check out our Neopixel library on github
