The PiGlow is a small add on board for the Raspberry Pi that provides 18 individually controllable LEDs. You can use it for all sorts of things! And of course, it fits inside a Pibow!
This board uses the SN3218 8-bit 18-channel PWM chip to drive 18 surface mount LEDs. Communication is done via I2C over the GPIO header with a bus address of 0x54 . Each LED can be set to a PWM value of between 0 and 255. Comes fully assembled and ready to rock.
Raspberry pi is not included in this kit, you have to buy it separately.
