Octobrite Defillipi and Fez Cobra

Anyone have any ideas using the Octobrite Defillipi from a Fez Cobra? Such as which pins to connect and configure? THanks.


Have you seen the Octobrite Defillipi documentation? Unless you are using some pre-made library, you should be able to use any of the Fez Cobra’s GPIO pins for Defillipi data connections. The grounds should be tied together, and the power (V+) should come from a supply meant to power the LEDs.

Do I configure the Fez pins that connect to the Data, Latch, Enable and Clock as digital pins?

That is correct, though using enable is kind of optional. If you don’t need the functionality enable gives you, you can just tie it to GND.
