I'm thinking about using this as a starting point to get into pixels.

Will it run 5v or 12v pixels?

I currently use a Pi with ssr to control standard light strands. I control it all using FPP for playback and was reading that you can control pixels using the rpi_ws281x library but you can't use the onboard audio at the same time. With this hat can I control the pixels while using the onboard audio?

As stated above, is there an updated ship date for them?
Who says lights are just for Christmas..

I've got a BBB/F4-B I'd give up that can do that if you want something now.

Thanks, but I have my original setup already to go out.  (Can we say, "Dongles"?)
The new hat will get swapped out when it arrives.


Most generous offer though. Thank you.

Is there any info available on how to configure this in fpp? I'd just like to jump ahead until mine gets here.

Do we know when this and the F16V2 will ship?  I need to get started on my display and just waiting for the last couple of pieces.

Do you think we'll get a top-level forum for PiCap (like FPP and BBB have) or should we keep commenting here in the group buy thread?

I'm an idiot, ignore the following!


What the heck kind of connectors does this thing use? Where can I buy them? I would have happily paid a few more bucks to have this board ready to use out of the box, either with connectors included or screw-set terminals. :-/  Guess I'll play with it after Christmas.
