Product Overview

The Octoscrolla is a cape that is designed to plug into a Beagle Bone variant running Falcon Pi Player to allow you to run up to 96 P10 panels or 40 P5 panels. Each of the eight connectors can control up to 12 P10 panels or 5 P5 panels.

The onboard RTC (real time click) is a TinyRTC board that is DS1307 compatible. It mounts between the Octoscrolla the Beagle Bone allowing FPP to keep proper time after a power loss. A CR2032 lithium battery is required to power the RTC (supplied).

The original Octoscroller was developed by Trammel Hudson and some background information on it can be found at

For help building out a panel, please take a look our Matrix Buildout Configurator and Calculator. It will create a plug and play solution for building a panel to your specifications.
