Mike Baney has published a new project to the Hackster.io website this week providing details on how you can create your very own Raspberry Pi Windows IoT Core LED matrix. Classified as an intermediate skill level project, completion is expected to take approximately 60 minutes and you will require a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, RGB Matrix Panel Drive Board For Raspberry Pi and P10 RGB LED Panel 32×16.
For more details on how to create your very own Raspberry Pi Windows IoT Core LED matrix jump over to the Hackster.io website, where Mike has forked the source code to modify it to get all four of the 1/4 scan 16×32 panels to display. Those unfamiliar with the Windows 10 IoT Core, it is a low-cost, small-footprint devices that will be available ‘free’ for Makers and commercial device builders. Built for small, secured smart devices, Windows 10 IoT Core supports UWP app experiences and provides support for ARM CPUs.
“As IoT solutions become more complex, they require more computing power, storage and connectivity. Fixed function appliances using Windows Server IoT 2019 can handle big workloads, like analyzing multiple video streams, and can use the results locally or send them to the cloud. With advanced security, high availability and manageability, Windows Server IoT 2019 lets you innovate faster with modern container technologies managed by Azure IoT Edge.”
