Raspberry Pi Hub75 v1.1
« on: September 05, 2017, 12:11:51 PM »
Hello,


i've bought an raspberry pi 2 and a 32x32 led matrix panel:

http://skpang.co.uk/catalog/rgb-led-panel-32x32-p-1329.html

i need a adapter to connect the hub75 to the pi.
i've found this adapter: https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/pUB52kt8


"NOTE: This board uses the OLD pinout and the rpi-rgb-led-matrix library must be specifically compiled to work with this version. If you are a FPP user, check on the forums before ordering any of this board."


can someone tell me how and which version i have to compile? and where exactly do i have to put the adapter i mean which pins of the pi.


because i want to run this code

I don't see anywhere on the skpang page that says that they are Hub75. If they are and aren't another format then you should be able to use the card by Falcon's CaptainMurdoch(Chris), my rPi-P10 or 1 of lots of other boards now available. Hub75 1/8 scan is the "standard" that both Octocroller/Octoscrolla for Beaglebone Black and the Raspberry Pi boards use. There is some support for other then Hub75 1/8th but it is limited. You can get P10 1/8th scan panels from about $U12 on Aliexpress so it may be easier to work with this much cheaper option which is actually supported.
Here is the original post by Chris where he talks about his board. http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php?topic=2299.0
