The Octoscroller is a cape that connects to the Beagle Bone Black.

The Octoscroller can be used to drive up to 64 P-10 LED matrix panels. The details can be found here.

This is an interest thread for the Octoscroller with all connectors and buffer chip. The price will be somewhere between $10 - $13 plus Paypal and shipping.

this seems like quite a few octoscoller capes being ordered seeing as each cape can support 64 of the 32*16 P10 panels.

Just need "one" for each BBB you own, that's all. :)

Does the octoscroller cape support more than P10 type panels on its outputs?

If you mean the P5 or p20 (and several others "pitches"), then I think the answer is yes IF they use the HUB75 connection and are 1/8 scan.

I may pick up 1 or two more myself as I have a small 3 panel matrix planned for the garage door and maybe another couple for the mailbox pole.  If the Pi can more reliably drive that many when it's finished, might go that route, but saw some flicker from the Pi when playing with only 2 panels..
