Processor to control four 16x32 RGB Led matrix panels

by maphy on Mon Nov 12, 2012 9:27 am

I need to control four 16x32 RGB Led matrix panels, I know that this panels are chainable. But with an standard arduino pcb it is not possible to do that. What sort of high speed processor should I use with four matrix led panels in chain?

you can wait a few weeks for a due. 5x the processor speed, familiar api. or try the teensy 3.0, chipkit, pinguino, propeller or leaf labs maple. all except the propeller have arduino like ides and apis. all except the maple are available from adafruit. adafruit sells the pic32 version of the pinguino. there's also an arm version out there somewhere. and a pic18, i think.

and don't forget the mbed. also available from adafruit.

I bought a Teensy 3.0 hoping to chain 4 or more 16x32 RGB Led matrix panels but found out the RGBmatrixPanel.cpp library does not work with Teensy.

What if anything can we do to fix this problem? I'm not really a programmer and would appreciate some ideas here.
