Q:
Can they be programmed with the neopixel library? Would like to use them in a school with Edublocks - which has the neopixel library Thanks
Asked by: Simon
A:



Thank you for your question, these would be compatible with the ZIP LED extension on the micro:bit make code environment and would also be compatible with the Edublocks environment. The product is based on WS2812B LEDs so anything those are compatible with should work with the ZIP Tile.

Q:
Hi, how do you connect the zip tiles together please, do you need separate fixings?
Asked by: Jon Williams
A:
Hi Jon,

Thank you for your question, you can connect zip tiles together with basically solid core cable or component legs. We have a data sheet on the link below for you.

Q:
How many of these can be connected together to make a larger display and in what configurations?
Asked by: Alex Clewett
A:
Hi Alex,

Thank you for your message, you can set up the tiles two high but a theoretically unlimited number along, the limit on this is your power supply as you start needing a lot of current quite rapidly with these.
