32x32 RGB LED Matrix Panel - 5mm PitchAdafruit
These matrices have 1024 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a 32x32 grid on the front. On the back there is a PCB with two IDC connectors (one input, one output: in theory you can chain these together) and 12 16-bit latches that allow you to drive the display with a 1:16 scan rate.
These displays are technically 'chainable' - connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this (yet). It requires a high speed processor and more RAM than the Arduino has!
These panels require 13 digital pins (6 bit data, 7 bit control) and a good 5V supply, up to 2A per panel. We suggest our 2A regulated 5V adapter and then connecting a 2.1mm jack. Please check out our tutorial for more details!
- A single 32x32 RGB panel,
- An IDC cable
- A power cable
We have a full wiring diagrams and working Arduino library code with examples from drawing pixels, lines, rectangles, circles and text. You'll get your color blasting within the hour! On an Arduino, you'll need 16 digital pins, and about 1600 bytes of RAM to buffer the 12-bit color image. At this time we do not have wiring documentation for the MEGA.
- Dimensions: 167.6mm x 167.6mm x 14.3mm / 6.56” x 6.56” x 0.56”

- Displays are 'chainable' - connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this yet
