The K8-B-Scroller by Kulp Lights is a cape for the Beaglebone Black designed to drive both WS2811 LED pixels and LED Panels. It has 8 local ports (fused with LED indicators) that can each drive 800 pixels at 40FPS. It also has one RJ45 differential port that can output an additional 4 strings using differential receivers. The 800 pixels per string is the same for all strings. There are also 3 HUB75 ports for driving LED Panels such as P5 and P10 panels. Each of the 3 ports can drive 5 × P5 or 10 × P10 panels. There are also two UARTs exposed via header pins which can drive DMX universes, Renard, or LOR. You can find onboard a Real Time Clock, temperature sensor, header for an OLED display, and four push buttons for navigating menus on the display.
The BeagleBone must be powered by a 5v power supply. In general, the power supply used to power the panels is normally usable providing it can maintain a stable voltage between 4.8v-5.1v. The pixels can be powered by a separate power supply that can be either 5v or 12v.
This board requires a Beaglebone Black to operate (sold separately). Note: BeagleBone Green Wireless boards are not supported.
