Pimoroni Interstate 75 16 X 32 Panel PicoW

Does anyone know if the interstate 75 works with a 16 X 32 Panel and is Pimoroni’s own MicroPython release compatible with the Picow?



Hi Lindsay,

Welcome back!

Yeah, the Interstate75 will work with 32x64 panels and is designed specifically for their version.

All of this and more is covered in their getting started guide here: Getting Started with Interstate 75



Hi @Liam Do you know if the Interstate75 works with a 16x32 panel as OP asked?
@Lindsay1021 did you ever find out if it did?

Hi William,

According to Pimoroni, it is compatible with 32x32, 32x64 and 64x64 LED matrices. You might want to look for a smaller-pitch 32x64 display if size is a concern.

It actually incorporates an RP2040, it doesn’t strap to a Pico, so you just use Pimoroni’s MicroPython version.

Let me know if we can answer anything else :slight_smile:

Thanks @James
I already have a 16 x 32 I want use. So I might get a Adafruit Matrix Portal - CircuitPython Powered Internet Display | ADA4745 | Core Electronics Australia instead as it says its compatible with the 16 x 32.

Hi William,

Adafruit’s matrix portal should work just fine for that, there’s also the advantage that Adafruit’s tutorials are top-tier so you should have it up and running in no time :slight_smile:

It does of work but I get ghosting pixels- if an LED is illuminated all the others in the same column glow dimly. . Haven’t had a chance to follow up yet.
