Although our line of products is generally designed for the Arduino world, this is not a rule – and many of our products are used by customers with different microcontroller systems and applications. One excellent example of this is Freetronics forum member Dennis Wyatt – who has interfaced our DMD boards with his Maximite computer (designed by fellow Australian Geoff Graham). Apart from some other numerical demonstrations, here is another example of the DMDs at work:
Kudos to Dennis for his research and making the results public. To find out more, check out the forum post here. And we’re on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
For the uninitiated, the Freetronics Dot Matrix Displays are simple to use, yet very bright for indoor and outdoor situations. Available in various colours, the 32 x 16 LED matrix can display text and graphics quite easily – and can be daisy-chained together for extended displays. For more information, see our range of Dot Matrix Displays here.
