WCMCU2812B (WS2812B) Neopixel LEDs on UP2 Board

I have 3 Neopixel LED rings that have 12, 16 and 24 LEDs and I was using Arduino for programming. But now, I have to recode everything on the UP2 board since it is the one that is going to be used in the project. I did some research and here are my problems.

  • Strict timing restrictions on the neopixels can cause some problems on the UP2 board. I guess there are some solutions like using SPI. But I am fairly new to programming and I don't know anything about SPI or UPboard. So I don't know how to implement this solution. For ex. I saw this library; https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_CircuitPython_NeoPixel_SPI But I don't know if it's applicable to UP2 or not, and if so; how?

  • If any of you have tried to use neopixel led rings on the UP2 board, can you share a guideline? For a real beginner..
