You can now create a dazzling display with your Raspberry Pi Model A+/B+/Pi 2 with the RGB Matrix HAT. This HAT plugs into your Pi and makes it super easy to control RGB matrices and create a colourful scrolling display or mini LED wall with ease.

This HAT is the finest to date, full of some really great circuitry. Here is a break down:

  • Simple design- plug in power, plug in IDC cable, run our Python code!
  • Power protection circuitry- you can plug a 5V 4A wall adapter into the HAT and it will automatically protect against negative, over or under-voltages! No accidental destruction of your setup.
  • Onboard level shiftersto convert the RasPi's 3.3V to 5.0V logic for clean and glitch free matrix driving
  • DS1307 Real Time Clockcan keep track of time for the Pi even when it is rebooted or powered down, to make for really nice time displays

Works with any similar 16x32, 32x32 or 32x64 RGB LED Matrices with HUB75 connections.

You can even chain multiple matrices together for a longer display, you can chain as many as you like but the bigger the display the harder it is on the Pi so keep that in mind! We don't recommend more than 32x128 pixel setups

Please note:this HAT is only for use with HUB75 type RGB Matrices. Not for use with NeoPixel, DotStar, or other 'addressable' LEDs.

Each order comes with:

  • HAT PCB with all surface mount parts assembled
  • 2x20 female socket connector
  • 2 pin terminal block
  • 2x8 IDC socket connector

Note:

Coin cell battery is not included. This is necessary to use the real time clock.

A 5V power supply is also required, not included, for powering the matrix itself. The Pi cannot do it due to the high currents. To calculate the max current of your matrix set up, multiply the width of all the chained matrix by 0.12 : A 32 pixel wide matrix needs 32*0.12 = 3.85A so pick up a 5V 4A power supply.
