Look here!! The coo LED matrix panel

The LED matrix panel just make what you want to show more bright and shining.
These panels are usually used to make video walls for advertisement or highlighting something to catch others’ eyeball.
They are really cool,aren’t they?
On the back there is a PCB with two IDC connectors (one input, one output: in theory you can chain these together) and 12 16-bit latches that
allow you to drive the display with a 1:8 scan rate.
By the way These displays are 'chainable'
- connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this (yet).
It requires a high speed processor and more RAM than the Arduino has!
The technical details are blew
Dimensions: 192mm x 96mm x 12mm (7.6" x 3.8" x 0.5")
Panel weight with IDC cable and power cable: 170 g
5V regulated power input, 2.5A max (all LEDs on)
5V data logic level input
2000 mcd LEDs on 6mm pitch
1/8 scan rate
Indoor display, 150 degree visibility
