NEW PRODUCT – Pimoroni Scroll pHAT HD – LED Matrix for Raspberry Pi Zero


What if Scroll pHAT had twice times as many pixels and individual pixel brightness control? Scroll pHAT HD, that’s what!!

Scroll pHAT HD packs 17×7 bright white pixels (119 total) onto a single pHAT, and gives you full PWM brightness control over each pixel. Create beautiful animations and even anti-aliased text by taking advantage of the per-pixel brightness.

Use Scroll pHAT HD as a scrolling message display for your tweets, the weather or the news, or use it as a 17-band spectrum analyzer for your audio. There’s even enough pixels for simple games like Tetris, Pong, or snake.

Though designed to match the format of the Raspberry Pi Zero it is compatible with all 40-pin GPIO Raspberry Pi variants (3/2/B+/A+).
