These screens are the very same that line the billboards of NYC. With the best selling RGB Matrix HAT, anyone can take a shot at creating a beautiful scrolling display to rival those found in Times Square.
The included Matrix HAT is our finest to date, full of some really great circuitry. Let’s break it down:
Simple design – plug in power, plug in IDC cable, run it’s Python code!
Power protection circuitry – you can plug a 5V 4A wall adapter into the HAT and it will automatically protect against negative, over or under-voltages! Yay for no accidental destruction of your setup.
Onboard level shifters to convert the RasPi’s 3.3V to 5.0V logic for clean and glitch free matrix driving
DS1307 Real Time Clock can keep track of time for the Pi even when it is rebooted or powered down, to make for really nice time displays
Pi Model B+ / Pi 2 / Pi 3 Case Base – Smoke Gray
32×32 RGB LED Matrix Panel – 5mm Pitch
RGB Matrix HAT + RTC for Raspberry Pi – Mini Kit
5V 4A (4000mA) switching power supply – good for basic scrolling text type displays on the RGB Matrix
