6 Port BrickPixel Driver Board to Arduino

Found that there was the possibility that the HAT would be getting a revamp soon, so I started working one some code for a runway effect.

Testing with an LED strip works as I would expect, the lights do their thing, shut off, repeat.

However, using any number of the Pixel Driver boards doesn't seem to do anything. Am I mistaken that the driver boards should effectively turn the individual LEDs into a set of (in the case of the 6 port) 2 "RGB" (meaning a cluster of 3LEDS) LEDS, that I should be able to control. And that adding 2 drivers would result in 4, and so on?

Or am I totally off base/missing something here?

    Turns out I had the Adafruit_NeoPixel incorrectly configured, and I was not correctly attaching the header pins to the driver board.

    Data line and ground were swapped. Thankfully, the boards still work!
