LED Matrix Driver


#1

Hello,

I just got a 32x64 RGB Led Matrix and a Grove - LED Matrix Driver v1.0. Im having a hard time finding any documentation or even a starting point in how to get this working and displaying basic numbers. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Here’s what I have:
32X64 RGB LED Matrix
Grove - LED Matrix Driver v1.0
Raspberry Pi 3
Grove Pi+

Hi @benurrey,

At the moment, we don’t have a library written for the Grove LED Matrix Driver, so we aren’t supporting it.


But I think there’s a workaround for this issue.

Looking over Seeed's website, I found the Grove LED Matrix Driver product along with a library written for the Arduino. Here’s a link:

Since the Grove LED Matrix Driver communicates over the I2C protocol, you can write a port of that library for Python, C++, or any language of your preference for your Raspberry Pi.


Do you think you’re willing to port it?
We may also try to port it in the near future, so that’s why I’m asking.

If there’re any other questions you might have, please let us know.


Thank you!
