Creating one array with many led stripes with Adafruit

by rexshow on Wed Apr 08, 2020 12:27 am

Looking to make an array with multiple led strips on different pins on my Arduino but have the light continue to each strip like one large array, I know this is possible with the FastLED library but wondering if it is also possible with the Adafruit library as well.

I dont see how i can make an array with my led strips using the matrix library unless i am not seeing something, if you could provide an example then that might help me understand how to use it in that way, thanks.

There is no electrical or logical difference between a matrix board and a bunch of strips laid next to each other and connected as shown in the guide.

Here is an example using the Neomatrix library with strips: https://learn.adafruit.com/guggenhat-bl ... at-display
