Hey everyone! Sorry for not being with you for a while. Been very busy.

But i'm starting to work on a new project. Of course, I use a bunch of LEDs as usual haha :D

For this project, I had to learn how to solder quad flat packs and SSOP. If you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Here's the link for YouTube video

All right, I am curious did you say there will 20 of those circuit boards?

It also sounded like there will not be a bus between them so that they will all be stand alone is that right?

Yep, 20 copies. There will be one way bus bringing the data TO the boards, from computer :)

SPI. No need for anything else really. I just need to bring image data to 20 of those panels. Maybe a video stream, but static images are more likely...

Coming to think of it one panel like in the video will have only 400 bytes of data, but 20 panels make it 8kBytes... Even SPI might actually allow me to have a good video FPS.
