24×30 RGB LED matrix

in LEDs, project logs by DP | 3 comments

Madox is designing a RGB LED matrix consisting of 30 addressable RGB LED strips with 24 LEDs each. The LEDs are controlled through the Teensy 3.0 Arduino board over an I2C interface.

The project is a LED lamp that will be mounted on the wall.  It comprises of 24 LED Strips of 30 LEDs each of which has an integrated WS2811 controller chip that enables individual addressing and 24bit RGB colour.  The strips are driven by a Teensy 3.0, which then subsequently interfaces with a controller board that will do most of the processing.  I hope to have it run games (e.g. Tetris) as well as turn on automatically at night, display the time and temperature and do some other random stuff.
