NEW PRODUCT – 64×64 RGB LED Matrix – 2.5mm Pitch – 1/32 Scan


Winter time can be rough in the city. The sky is gray. The weather is unpredictable. So slough off those seasonal blues with some Times Square razzle dazzle from this sweet, ultra-high-density 64×64 RGB LED Matrix. These panels are typically used to make video walls. Here in New York we see them on the sides of buses and on top of taxi cabs displaying animations or video advertisements. We thought they looked really cool, so we picked up a few boxes of them from a factory. They have 4,096 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a 64×64 grid at a 2.5mm pitch.

WARNING! These 64-pixel tall matrices use a non-standard 5-address multiplexing system! WARNING!

Many add-ons or drivers use only a 4-address (ABCD) setup. Right now the only board we have that can use these big matrices is our RGB Matrix Bonnet for Raspberry Pi, and you’ll need to connect a solder jumper. Other libraries such as our Arduino library, or our HDMI driver boards don’t support 5-address multiplexing!

Full Kit Contents:

  • 64×64 RGB panel
  • IDC ribbon cable (~200mm)
  • power cable (~480mm)
  • 4 mounting screws and mini-magnets

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
