UPDATED GUIDE: RGBMatrix Tiling with CircuitPython #MatrixPortal @Adafruit @CircuitPython

You told us that 6,144 individual LEDs was not enough.  We listened.  You can now create big, tiled displays with CircuitPython’s RGBMatrix libraries.

If you have multiple identical panels, you can extend a single display across them, vertically, horizontally, or both…

This example uses 4 64×32 matrices attached to a single MatrixPortal using the “serpentine” wiring style.

That’s a total of 24,576 LEDs! We think you can do even more, subject to the amount of RAM available to CircuitPython and the number of amps your 5VDC power supply can deliver.

Load CircuitPython 6.2.0-alpha.1 or newer on your MatrixPortal or other compatible CircuitPython board, then check out the updated guide!
