Description: Are you looking to add a lot of color to your project? These massive 32x32 RGB LED panels are an awesome place to start. You can create animations, games, or all sorts of other fun displays with them. Yes, you read that right: a 32x32 LED matrix, that’s 1024 LEDs on a 7.5" x 7.5" board. On top of all that, thanks to two IDC connectors, and a seamless frame, these panels can be daisy chained together to form even bigger LED displays.
These panels require a regulated 3.3-5V supply for power which needs to be able to source a good amount of current – up to 2A in the worst case. Included with each panel is a 0.15" pitch 4-pin polarized connector power cable which is terminated with both a female polarized connector, and a pair of spade terminals. Needless to say, if you are looking for a large, cheap, and easy to use RGB LED matrix you’ve come to the right place.
Note: These displays were intended for use with FPGAs and high-speed processors. We’ve found that 16MHz is about the slowest processor that can drive these adequately. If you want to daisy-chain them together, you will need more speed and more RAM.

Very nice matrix. It is working with an Arduino Uno very well. It is slow due to the clock speed of the arduino but it was expected. The challenge is to enable the board with an FPGA and also the Intel Edison/raspberry.

I just finished a long day of assembly putting 35 of these together into a LED wall and they look great! Not too bright, not too dim. I am using them with the controller they sell over at Adafruit and if you load in the LED cube setup file, these work without a hitch, getting pixels right from your DVI cable.

Many thanks for all your help and support. We received the parcel only three days after ordering the items. All Great really what else can I say!…
The panel looked amazing when I first hooked it up for a uni project and I worked everything out it was all working fine then I went to test again it failed. No light nothing. I then was glad I bought a second one as a spare but that didn’t work at all so a very expensive piece of equipment to fail. Worst of all my project is due in 1.5 weeks and I no longer have a panel to show. I have emailed in but have got no response I would like both to be replaced immediately so I can show my project.
With your unit working originally, then stopping, and your second unit also not working, it would appear that there may be an issue locally that is causing failure or is incorrectly setup. Our support team will be able to assist you. In the event it is determined these are defective, they can help you with a replacement.
easy to use thanks to the published library. Very sturdy build, excellent quality.
