Product Description

Now available from Tronixlabs Australia is the Pimoroni Blinkt! for Raspberry Pi - RGB LED Board. Inspired by Alex Ellis's work with his Raspberry Pi Zero Docker Cluster Pimoroni developed these boards for him to use as status indicators. They offer eight APA102 pixels in the smallest (and cheapest) form factor to plug straight into your Raspberry Pi 3/2/B+/A+/Zero.

Each pixel is individually controllable and dim-able allowing you to create gradients, pulsing effects, or just flash them on and off like crazy. The data and clock lines are connected to GPIO #23 and #24 respectively but for simplicity you can just use our Python library to drive them.

Please note! Be careful to plug in your Blinkt! the correct way round, it has curves on the top that match the corners of any Raspberry Pi.

If you want to access the rest of the GPIO at the same time as using Blinkt! then the Mini Black HAT Hack3r is the ideal accompaniment allowing you to combine Blinkt! with another HAT or pHAT or just prototype using the GPIO pins for your own project.

Features:

  • Eight APA102 RGB LEDs
  • Individually controllable pixels
  • Bright and shiny!
  • Sits directly on top of your Pi in a tiny footprint
  • Fits inside most Pi cases
  • Comes fully assembled

Code and examples available on GitHub: https://github.com/pimoroni/blinkt
