From the Forums: Led 32×32 Kernel Module #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Thanks to Marc_Karasek from the Adafruit forums for sharing! Check out the repo here

I have created a kernel module to handle the GPIO interface for the LED 32×32 Panel.

This is based on the Src code from the Adafruit. I have some minor code cleanup todo but will then be pushing this to a repo on github.

Once that is done I will post the link to the repo here.

Kernel Module Supports:

  1. All GPIO Functions setbits(), clearbits(), etc.. via ioctl calls.
  2. Has a imalive function included. So at load time it will flash red/green/blue on the display to tell you it is alive and well.
  3. Supports (via sysfs) autocreation of the /dev/gpioleddriver device. Included in repo will be udev .rules file for setting up device for user access.
  4. user land application (led-matrix) has been modified to use the ioctl calls instead of GPIO. No more need for sudo 🙂
  5. Kmod can be compiled to use either ioremap or sysfs for access to gpio registers. Both tested.

Read more here and here.
