The SFE 8x8 LED Matrix - Serial Interface - Red/Green/Blue is a large sized RGB LED Matrix with a backpack that has been designed to take SPI serial input and display any graphics you pass it. All the refreshing and communication control is taken care of by the backpack. It's even reprogrammable. 7 software selectable colors are available. The unit comes with a Red/Green/Blue LED Matrix assembled with a RGB Matrix Backpack Controller.
The SFE 8x8 LED Matrix - Serial Interface - Red/Green/Blue offers an easy way to control the tri-color common cathode 8x8 LED matrices. The entire controller fits behind the LED matrix so that even larger arrays of matrices may be created; external connectors are oriented to allow daisy-chaining of multiple controller boards. The boards accept a special software command to be re-configured for daisy-chained systems. Each backpack is based around an AVR microcontroller and contains all the necessary circuitry to drive the LED matrix.
By default the controller runs a simple frame buffer program that listens for image data and displays in constantly on the LEDs. Data is sent to the backpack using an SPI interface. The microcontroller may also be reprogrammed to give the LED matrix more individual intelligence.
• Runs on 5V
