Raspberry Pi-Lite LED Matrix


Self-confessed wireless geeks Ciseco have created a LED matrix consisting of 126 tiny LED lights that can be configured with a Raspberry Pi to create static or scrolling graphics or text.

The Pi-Lite board consists of 9 rows of 14 red LED lights that are controlled by an on board Arduino ATmega 328 processor which allows the user to send commands to the board and create images with light and scrolling graphics/text.

The Pi-Lite equipment comes ready to plug in and play, however it can be adapted with a radio module to use it wirelessly.

The kit can be picked up for £20 via the Ciseco website and comes with  firmware that will allow for displaying scrolling text, bar graphs, VU meter and can address pixels on an individual basis.
