Using phat beat with ws2812 led drivers on raspberry pi


#1

Hey Guys,

So, I was interested in using the phat beat hat along with this neopixel LED stick:

The issue is, it seems that the phat beat pins use both pwm channels that I would need, BCM13 and BCM18. However, for BCM13, since it is used for rewind functionality (see https://pinout.xyz/pinout/phat_beat#), I would like to just disable it outright since I do not intend to rewind, and to use this pin to drive my NeoPixel.

Is this possible, or is there a better way to go about this?

Thanks and sorry if it is a noobie question!
