Following an epic tadpole story that did not turn out as planned, four goldfish came into my house with their aquarium. The aquarium was second hand, so the lighting was no longer in working order. No worries, we will repair it in the Yoctopuce way...

A USB full-color scrolling LED display

By mvuilleu, in DIY, july 01,2022.

While working on our radar last week, we realized that it was a bit unfortunate that two Yocto-Color-V2 were required to drive a 32x8 LED display. Even more so, that we had just developped a custom device for a customer, capable of driving 512 RGB LEDs. Therefore, we decided to improve the situation by expanding the capability of the Yocto-Color-V2.
