This shield is for easily controlling RGB LED Matrix panels using with a Mini 32 ESP32 board ,aka the ESP32 D1 Mini.
Assembly Required: This shield is a kit, but uses all through hole parts so is easily assembled.
NOTE: This board will only work with Matrix displays that the I2S library supports. Please check out the libraries' Github page for more information.
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 and has screw terminals to connect the power cable that comes with most panels.
Unlike previous matrix panels I sell, this design does not require to connect to the P-Out connector using the ribbon. It should also be better able to handle connecting to multiple displays. It is also much more performant than the previous version.
This really makes using the display as simple as possible and can be used to make some pretty awesome looking projects!
It also has pins broken out for GY521 (MPU6050) accelerometer module so you can make some pretty interesting falling sand projects with it!
The ESP32-RGB64x32MatrixPanel-I2S-DMA library comes with some pretty cool examples. I really recommend checking out PatternPlasma and AuroraDemo
Note: These displays are difficult to video correctly, they look much better in person!
Each ESP32 I2S Matrix Shield is a kit and comes with the following:
The following components are not provided, but are required to use this board.
I can't answer that for sure, it should work with any display that works with the ESP32-RGB64x32MatrixPanel-I2S-DMA library. I can't guarantee that all display's will work.
If you are looking for installation instructions or more information about the board, please checkout the boards Github page.
Please note that I can not provide coding support for this item. I can offer some troubleshooting advice on getting them working (but please also read the section labeled "will this work with my display") and I can point you to some examples I have created using these board, but I will not be able to give support on building something specific.
