Bus Pirate script for 8×32 LED matrix

Posted on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010 in binmode, Bus Pirate, scripts by Ian

will_j posted a Bus Pirate script that controls a Sure Electronics 8×32 LED marquee:

Here’s a quick and dirty perl script to display ‘BPv3’ on a Sure Electronics 8×32 LEd Matrix display.

You can also use a 16×24 display if you change the second command code to 44 from 40.

Any improvements gratefully received – i.e. a nice character lookup table process would be good!

View a copy in the Bus Pirate scripts folder. We demonstrated a slightly different Sure LED matrix a in a demo: post a few weeks ago.

Thanks for the tip!

    Good morning. I’m having some difficuly understanding how the display ” SURE ELECTRONICS P4 32X8 3208 RED LED DOT MATRIX UNIT BOARD SPI LIKE” Arduino UNO works. – I would like to add some buttons and potentiometers to the system. For exampe: by pressing the 1 st button the name display with the memorised name could light up per minimum 30 seconds and so on for the entries on the other buttons. – I would like to know how to add two potentiometers: one to adjust the speed of sliding and one to adjust the time. Thank you in advance. Looking forward to your kind reply. Best regards
