How the FAST Modern Platform handles LEDs & Lighting

Coming soon!

This section of the documentation is not yet complete and will be coming soon. However, if you need this now, and/or you want to share what documentation is most important to you, please post to the #docs channel in the FAST Pinball Slack community. Thanks!

This page still needs to be written. Here are the main points though:

  • Pinball lighting is all LED now--inserts, flashers, GI ... everything! Most likely you'll use individual RGB LEDs for everything.
  • The FAST Pinball Modern Platform supports serial RGB LEDs in a WS2812 format and APA-102 format.
  • LEDs connect to FAST expansion boards and FAST breakout boards.

Documentation Feedback? Requests? Confused?

Hi! I'm Brian, and I'm responsible for the documentation at FAST Pinball. If you have any feedback, requests, corrections, ideas, or any other thoughts about the docs, please let me know!

You can email me at I maintain this site in my spare time, so there might be a week or so delay if you email me.

If you have a more pressing need, reach out to us via Slack, or email Aaron Davis.
