Daisy-chain three 16×32 LED Displays with a Raspberry Pi
In this tutorial, we will look at daisy chaining together two or three of these displays and also wrapping Henner’s fast and efficient C code in some Python that will create images on the fly and populate them with text before handing them over to the C code to handle the refreshing of the display.
