Experimenting with graphics on the Freetronics Dot Matrix Display

Although most of our LED Dot Matrix Displays end up being used for large text or numerical displays, you can address each LED individually - and thus create all sorts of interesting displays and graphics.

One example of this has been demonstrated by Andrey Minin who has used two DMDs to create a 32 x 32 LED display with the following results:

Furthermore Andrey has also published a sketch to demonstrate this with our OLED display as well. To check out the sketches for yourself and more discussion - visit the Freetronics support forum. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

As used in the project mentioned above, check out our Freetronics Dot Matrix Displays. They're simple to use, yet very bright for indoor and outdoor situations. Available in various colours, the 32 x 16 LED matrix can display text and graphics quite easily - and can be daisy-chained together for extended displays.
