LED Matrix with Feather

by etomanek on Thu Feb 01, 2018 5:08 am

Hi
For an IOT project I want to use the Assembled Feather HUZZAH w/ESP8266 with the LED Charlieplexed Matrix White, ID 2974.
Can I connect these devices direclty or do I need any other device / driver board?
Is there a library for Micropython to display text and graphics?
Thank you
Erich

The Feather Wing version will connected directly to the Feather:

You can still use the one you linked if you want, but you'll have to run wires between the two since they are physically different in shape. Feather Wings are designed to plug straight into Feathers.

There is CircuitPython support:

Thank you Carter
You have so many products, sometimes it is difficult to keep an overview.
