Add an individually addressable full colour LED to your E-Textiles projects with the Kitronik Sewable ZIP LED. This new addition to our Electro Fashion range incorporates a full colour addressable ZIP LED, which can be controlled by a suitable processor such as the micro:bit.

The four connection pads have been designed so that they can either be sewn with conductive thread or used with crocodile clips.

The boards four connection pads are; +V, GND, Data in, and Data out. If using a single Sewable ZIP LED the Data in pad should be connected to the processor drive signal pin. When connecting several together in a chain the Data out of one Sewable ZIP LED should be connected to the Data in of the next board.

Note: If using with a BBC micro:bit:

  • We recommend that no more than four Sewable ZIP LEDs should be powered directly by the microbit. If more are required, a separate power supply should be used. 
  • If you use a separate power supply of more than 3.3V then a level shift for the data signal will be needed.
