Raspberry Pi GPIO output


Sorry if this has been asked before, I was wondering if there is an extension that allows output on the RPi pins? As part of an arcade cabinet project, I would like to be able to use addressable LEDs connected to the pi for led effects. does anyone know if this is possible? I’m already using some pins for button input, but wanted to see if there is any way of output too.


Hi thebodger,

not a direct answer to your question, but maybe an addition to your idea: I’ll use a Digispark with an ATTiny85 over serial to control WS2812 LEDs from RPi0/Arcade MakeCode.
The ATTiny85 has no hardware serial, but a SoftSerial implementation exists - 4800 Baud aren’t that much, but it’s enough.
