  • I’ve always wished Sparkfun would create an addressable LED version of these boards, but they sadly do not offer it. I’ve contemplated doing the same as you, cutting traces and re-routing. I also like making useful stuff, so… I’ve created an exact replica of this board so it will allow the use of such LEDs, and it’s available on OSH Park. I’ve mad it so that the LED portions are chain-able if necessary so one can daisy chain these if needed as well. Shipped free, they’re $19.35 for a set of three, (6.45 per board, but 3 is the min order), which is a bit more than what Sparkfun offers, but these are ready to go if anyone is interested. Just note that these take a bit longer to arrive

    These boards are completely made from the ground up, using available dimensions for the holes and the button contact locations. They are not from modified Sparkfun eagle files.These are designed to use the SJ-F5-2811-F LEDs, That Sparkfun offers, or equivalent.

    NOTE: the diodes ARE NOT necessary unless when creating a scanning matrix with multiple button boards. Simple jumpers are all that is needed if using single boards for projects.

  • Arduinos do not come with a USB cable. you have to purchase them separately…
