  • Description-


    Get visual feedback from your Pi!

    The PiGlow is a small add on board for the Raspberry Pi that provides 18 individually controllable LEDs. You can use it for all sorts of things! And of course, it fits inside a Pibow!

    There are tons of things you can do with it:

    • Mood lighting / ambiance
    • Showing current system load
    • Notify you of events like mentions in tweets or incoming e-mail
    • Feedback the status of scripts/daemons running on your Pi
    • Works great when VESA mounted to provide a cast against a wall
    • ...and pretty much anything else you can think of!

    This board uses the SN3218 8-bit 18-channel PWM chip to drive 18 surface mount LEDs. Communication is done via I2C over the GPIO header with a bus address of 0x54 (Python example code provided). Each LED can be set to a PWM value of between 0 and 255. Comes fully assembled and ready to rock.

    • 18 LEDs (three each of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and white)
    • Great to provide feedback if you're running your Pi headless
    • PWM (dimming) control for each channel
    • Fully assembled (no soldering required)
    • Python code to access and control lighting provided

    Lots of example code for Python, Scratch, WiringPi, etc over at the Pimoroni page
