Now and again we see our products "out in the wild", and another example has been reviewed by a popular video blogger Mr Hobbyelectronics - who demonstrates how easy it is to set up and use our DMD LED Dot Matrix Display boards.
An excellent adaptor board is included with all our DMDs that allows for plug-and-play operation with an Arduino or compatible - and our custom Arduino library makes controlling the display very easy.
There's plenty of example projects and you'll be displaying data, time, date or more in no time at all. However don't take our word for it, watch the following video to see more:
Please note that when attaching external power to the rear of the DMD - use 5V DC (not 12V).

And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
If you would like to have fun with a large LED dot matrix display as demonstrated in the video above, check out the 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.
