Add an individually addressable full colour LED to your E-Textiles projects with the Kitronik Sewable ZIP LED. This new addition to the Electro Fashion range incorporates a full colour addressable ZIP LED, which can be controlled by a suitable processor such as the microbit.
The four connection pads have been designed so that they can either be sewn with conductive thread or used with crocodile clips.
The boards four connection pads are; +V, GND, Data in, and Data out. If using a single Sewable ZIP LED the Data in pad should be connected to the processor drive signal pin. When connecting several together in a chain the Data out of one Sewable ZIP LED should be connected to the Data in of the next board.
Note: If using with a BBC micro:bit:
- We recommend that no more than four Sewable ZIP LEDs should be powered directly by the microbit. If more are required, a separate power supply should be used.
- If you use a separate power supply of more than 3.3V then a level shift for the data signal will be needed.
