How to Use an LED Matrix Panel with Your Raspberry Pi
LED matrix panels are just awesome. They look retro and have the added benefit of being useful. You can build just about anything using an LED matrix—a ticketing system display, an NHL scoreboard, a stock ticker, a clock, etc.
You might be surprised, however, as to how difficult it is to integrate an LED matrix into your project, especially for beginners. Since I needed this display for a cryptocurrency ticker I'm working on, I decided to write a generic guide that makes using the display a bit more accessible for beginners.
In this guide, you'll learn how to set up and start using an LED matrix with your Raspberry Pi.
