LED animation board for Raspberry-Pi

PiGlow is a small board for Raspberry Pi offering 18 individually controllable LEDs. You can use it for all sorts of things!
Works perfectly with all Raspberry-Pi models!
You can see the PiGlow in action on this YouTube video

There are a ton of things you can achieve with the PiGlow:

  • Light atmosphere and Mood lighting
  • View system load status
  • Notification of events such as the arrival of an incoming tweet or email message
  • Inform you of the status of a script/deamon running on your Pi
  • Great if you use it on a VESA mount to create a visual atmosphere on the wall.
  • ...and many other things, all we have to do is imagine them!

Note: The Raspberry-Pi and the case are used for illustration purposes, the latter are sold separately.

Technical details

This board uses an 8-bit SN3218 18-channel PWM controller to drive the 18 surface-mounted LEDs. Communication is ensured via the I2C bus of the GPIO connector of the Raspberry-Pi (sl SN3218 uses address 0x54, see the code example provided). Each LED can receive a PWM value between 0 and 255.

  • 18 LEDs (three of each: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and white)
  • Great for offering feedback if you're running your Pi autonomously.
  • Luminosity control with PWM on each channel.
  • Fully assembled (no additional solder required)
  • Python code to control each LED.
