I hope this is the rightplace on the new forum to ask advice on LED P10 modules.
I have recently got into using P10 multiplexed LED modules.
My first project used single colour red Leds to display on a 32 x 32 LED panel ( made up of two 16x32 panels stuck together.)
While I had played with the DMD library, this project needed a celphone/wifi update function, so I used the HDW00 controller module and it works fine.
My next project has 8 full colour modules, 1/4 scan, with HUB75 sockets.
I it is a copy of a previous board I made which had 24 daisy chained 7 segment displays with TPIC6B595 shift register / drivers.
I would like to be able to use my existing decoding sketch that has an array of 24 characters to send to the panels.
Of course some of the actual numbers are grouped into 3 or 4 for the new display modules, so I only need 8 panels.
I have searched around and found some posts such as:-
(P10 32x16 LED panel 1/4 scan now works with Adafruit_GFX)
but reading the Adafruit description and it says that their library is pushing it to drive just one panel with full colour with an arduino memory.
I can understand that as these displays have to be constantly refreshed ( unlike my previous latched 7 segment ones that were " light and forget " ) that memory will be precious.
However, I only have 6 yellow numbers (0-9), 12 green numbers, and 6 red numbers.
I need no animation, or large font tables, or dimming, and I really wish I had bought single colour panels which I could have driven easily with the DMD library.
There are other HD controller modules with 1/4 scan HUB75 connectors, with usb drive, but I will still need the Arduino to feed the array to it, and I have no idea of the format.
Is there a library I could use with just connecting the one colour, and sorting out the 1/4scan driving sequence ?
I might have to use say 4 promini modules to split the workload ?
