A huge dot matrix LED panel to connect to your Freetronics Eleven, EtherTen and more! This large, bright 512 LED matrix panel has on-board controller circuitry designed to make it easy to use straight from your board. Clocks, status displays, graphics readouts and all kinds of impressive display projects are easy to create using this display.
The photos don't do this display justice: it's stunningly bright, so put on your sunglasses before you fire it up!
To make it really easy to get started we include a breakout board and ribbon cable along with the display module, so you can plug it straight in to an Arduino-compatible board and start playing with it right away.
