Adafruit RGB Matrix Bonnet

The Adafruit RGB Matrix Bonnet allows you to create a dazzling display with your Raspberry Pi. These boards plug into your Pi and makes it super easy to control RGB matrices and create a colorful scrolling display or mini LED wall with ease.

"Bonnet" boards work on any Raspberry Pi with a 40-pin GPIO header — Zero, Zero W/WH, Model A+, B+, Pi 2 and Pi 3. They do not work with older 26-pin boards like the original Model A or B. Note with the Pi Zero you may need to solder a header on the Pi board.

This bonnet will make your matrix projects super easy and avoids wiring complexity:

  • Simple design - plug in power, plug in IDC cable, run the Python code
  • Power protection circuitry - you can plug a 5V 4A wall adapter into the bonnet and it will automatically protect against negative, over or under-voltages
  • Onboard level shifters to convert the RasPi's 3.3V to 5.0V logic for clean and glitch free matrix driving
  • Fully assembled compact design no soldering required! Plugs onto any Raspberry Pi with a 2x20 connector, and you're ready to glow

Note: this Bonnet is only for use with HUB75 type RGB matrices. Not for use with NeoPixel, DotStar, or other 'addressable' LEDs.
