If you love to play around with dot matrix displays and enjoy the intricacies of multiplexing various rows and columns to create imagery, text or even creative facial gestures for robots, then you’re going to love this massive 32x64 RGB LED Matrix Panel. This awesome panel offers a full suite of 2048 RGB LED’s with 4mm Pitch, and can also be Cascaded with more panels to create extra-large dot matrix LED Displays for really impressive projects.

Compared to the MAX7219 chips that are utilised for the smaller, lower power 8x8 dot matrix displays that we’re all quite fond of, these larger RGB LED Displays use the higher power SH74HC based shift registers to deliver a good amount of power for a striking level of brightness. This, in addition to the 4mm pitch of the LED units, ensure that this display will be more than just easy to see, but actually difficult to ignore.

In terms of usability, this matrix display is relatively easy to operate with the connection diagram included in the images above, and features two IDC connectors on the back – one for DATA_IN and one for DATA_OUT. The DATA_IN port is where you would typically connect a microcontroller, while the DATA_OUT port is the one that’s used to cascade these panels. However, it’s important (and kind of unfortunate) to note that that because of the massive size of this panel, some Arduino Boards will not be fast enough to handle it, and will definitely not be able to handle more than a single panel in cascade style. As such, it’s recommended to use an Arduino Mega 2560 or something even more powerful like a Raspberry Pi Board to control this panel, and if you’re eager to cascade two (2) or more of these panels, you may have to do some serious research to figure out which MCU would be best.

Alternatively, if you would like to achieve a similar sized panel, but without having to get serious about sourcing high-speed microcontrollers, we also stock the 16x32 RGB LED Matrix Panel, as well as the 32x32 RGB LED Matrix Panels too, which can be cascaded effectively with an Arduino Mega 2560 or possibly even a lower power board.

Typical Applications for these 32x64 Cascadable RGB LED Matrix Panels:

With each awesome new matrix panel display that we get in stock, we always seem to find new and exciting projects to experiment with, and this is no different with this 32x64 RGB LED Matrix Panel, which is large enough to take on multiple projects that smaller panels could achieve - but simultaneously on the same display panel. As such, you can now use this massive display to have your RSS feeds displayed along the top of the display, next to your real-time clock, with some news updates running up the side and a small Tetris section in the bottom right – mixing all of the best projects from many of the smaller panels into one mega-project.
