So I’m working on getting some dotstar LED strips working on the BalenaFin board. The Dockerfile builds successfully, and I’m able to navigate to the code from the Balena Cloud Dashboard to execute the python script. The code runs fine, but the LED’s aren’t lighting up. I’ve been researching online and the documents say that SPI is turned on by default. According to the documentation for the pins, the ones I need are pin 6 and 8 on the Co-Processor I/O Connector. The code works on a RPi and it lights up. The pins I’m using there are GPIO 11 SCLK and GPIO MOSI GPIO10.
I feel like I’m missing something, like a connection between the pins and LED strip, but not sure what.
