Tune-to controller for P10 panel
« on: October 18, 2015, 12:17:26 PM »
I finally got around to writing some code to drive a single P10 panel with "tune-to" text.

It has a user settable frequency (simple up/down buttons) and runs from 5V.

I only did the firmware to do one panel to keep things simple.

The text fits for the intended application so I wasn't going to do multi panel.

Remember that this is not a generic P10 controller driven by a sequencer.

Will it run the waterproof versions?  I could see mounting this below my mail box out front as the tune too sign..

In theory it should run any of the 16x32 pixel RGB panels that use the HUB75 interface.

My idea was for the text to be fixed and just have the frequency user changeable.

As for price, my pure wild guess is $25 for the built and programmed PCB.

The code I have for it now can have several words flashed up one after the other, but is only settable when I program the PCB.

The frequency part of the message is set using two buttons on the PCB.  They adjust the frequency displayed just like you were tuning a car radio.

I'm in for one of these as well if you can customise the text and colours when you first program it. I'd want two panels pointing in different directions but saying the same thing.

I guess it depends on the eyesight of the viewers ?  lol

I was imagining people putting the sign on their front boundary, but a single P10 panel with the large font (~140mm tall) I tried should be readable at maybe 5-10 metres from the curb.
