    Default Pixel String Pihat Basic for Raspberry Pi pixel control

    My newest board is a Pihat for control of pixels using FPP. Standard 2 outputs, also has 2 power injection ports. Optional regulator for 12V users, RTC module and standoffs all of which are $1 each.

    Available on my site, GetJBoards.com

    Just curious - If there are only two outputs from the board, why 4 different fuses?

    Al, my guess is the 4 fuses are for the "Standard 2 outputs, also has 2 power injection ports"

    Jeremy, I'm looking forward to the PiZero version. We that be available soon?

    Correct the power injection ports are fused as well. Should have the new zero footprint board next week.

    I’m also looking forward to the Pi Zero pixel controller board.
    After looking at your board, I see mounting holes which seem to line up with the pi zero board. Is that correct?

    Yeah you can mount this onto a zero as well and have holes for bolts/standoffs

    Is there a program/application that will stop you from being able to do anything after a 36 hour programming session? I need that!

    I see it now. Thanks.

    Here's a PiZero Hat I created for last year:

    I also have two other models--both are designed to fit into a small tube (aka PixelSticks). One if for 12V, and the other actually has the 12V->5V converter on-board that can be used to power 5V pixels (using 12V input).

    How long will the super capacitor hold the time with the RTC module option?
