A new FeatherWing for connecting an ESP32 Feather to an RGB Matrix display from @witnessmenow #Feather #Adafruit #FeatherWing

FeatherWing for the Adafruit Feather Huzzah 32 ESP32 board that connects to a RGB LED Matrix panel.

New from Brian Lough on Tindie is the Huzzah 32 Matrix FeatherWing. This board has a Feather socket for the Adafruit Feather Huzzah 32 ESP32 board and connects to a RGB LED Matrix panel.

The RGB LED matrix panels are one of the coolest displays you can use with an Arduino, but there is quite a bit of wiring to connect them up and also they are a little awkward to power. The panels are only about $20 from aliexpress/eBay

This board makes wiring them really simple! The board just slots directly onto the input header pin, uses the ribbon cable that comes provided with most of these panels to connect the pins of the output header and has screw terminals to connect the power cable that comes with most panels.

This board is designed to work with the awesome PX Matrix arduino library by 2dom

Brian has made a really colorful Tetris-style clock display. Refresh is fast enough for displaying animation.
