Scroll pHAT HD

A whole heap of LED pixels with individual brightness control, for scrolling messages, animations, and more - Scroll pHAT HD!

Scroll pHAT HD packs 17x7 pixels (119 total) onto a single pHAT, and gives you full PWM brightness control over each pixel. Create beautiful animations and even anti-aliased text by taking advantage of the per-pixel brightness.

Now also available in beautiful coloured versions: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and pink!

Use Scroll pHAT HD as a scrolling message display for your tweets, the weather or the news, or use it as a 17-band spectrum analyser for your audio. There's even enough pixels for simple games like Tetris, Pong, or snake.
