What's better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! But adding an LED matrix can mean a lot of wiring and space. This little kit makes the whole thing simple and tidy!

  • Requires a 5V supply
  • Constant current drivers for ultra-bright, consistent colour
  • 1/16 step display dimming
  • I2C interface
  • Backpack comes with address-selection jumpers so you can connect up to eight 1.2" 8x8's together (or a combination, such as four 1.2" 8x8's and four 7-segments, etc) on a single I2C bus.
  • Also available as a mini 07" 8x8, a small 1.2" 8x8, and a 4-digit 0.56" 7-segment

The product kit comes with:

  • A fully tested and assembled 1.2" LED backpack
  • 1.2" 8x8 Matrix Square Pixel
  • 4-pin header

    Adafruit have even provided a tutorial showing how to solder, wire and control the display and a library to help you get started!
