Getting Started with RGB Matrix Panel @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

by Ramin Sangesari via hackster.io

The use of RGB LED Matrix panels has become popular in recent years. Are you one of the enthusiasts of these panels? Are you looking to add a lot of color to your project? These massive RGB LED Matrix panels are an awesome place to start. You can create animations, games or all sorts of other fun displays with them. On top of all that, thanks to two IDC connectors, and a seamless frame, these panels can be daisy chained together to form even bigger LED displays. In this tutorial, we will learn how to use these panels. This tutorial consists of 7 sections. Stay with me.

As it mentioned, In this tutorial, we will learn how to set up these panels. Now, How to connect one of these panels to the Raspberry Pi? According to Henner Zeller tutorial’s, Connecting a panel requires 16 connections, which will make it harder. Look at the below picture! Connecting these wires is very confusing.

The best way to get rid of these wires, Use an alternative Drive Board. The RGB Matrix Panel Drive Board is designed by ElectroDragon team Based on the active adapter board of Henner Zeller RPI matrix.
