NEW PRODUCT – 64×64 RGB LED Matrix – 3mm Pitch – 192mm x 192mm


Wintertime 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 3mm pitch.

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

Many add-ons or drivers use only a 4-address (ABCD) setup. You can use these matrices with our RGB Matrix Bonnet for Raspberry Pi, RGB Matrix HAT (you’ll need to connect a solder jumper), or Matrix Portal (ditto, jumper required). Other libraries such as our Arduino shield with Adafruit library or our HDMI driver boards don’t support 5-address multiplexing!

The SmartLED Shield in combination with the Teensy 3.5/3.6 has the hardware for driving these 5-address panels, and enough RAM to refresh the 4096 pixels, however, the power plug must be manually soldered/adapted because the shield overlaps it.

Full Kit Contents:

  • 64×64 RGB panel
  • IDC ribbon cable (~16cm)
  • power cable (~50cm)

There may be slight variations between each product based on what supplier we use, but the overall shape/use/functionality is identical.

Note: This does not include 4 mounting screws and mini-magnets, however, we do have them available separate here!
