This is a cape for the PocketBeagle that provides six HUB75 output connectors for driving "standard" P10/P5 panels. It also contains a temperature sensor, two push buttons for access to the FPP menus, and a connector for an OLED display (included).
The PocketScroller has six output connectors, each of which can drive more that 12 P10 1/8 scan panels for a total panel count of 72. It supports the 1/4 scan P10 panels, 1/8 scan P5 panels, and 1/16 scan P5 panels. Other panel types that use the 1/8 or 1/16 scan rates are also supported.
The OLED display on the PocketScroller will not fully function if all six outputs are used. If you use all six panel connectors to run panels, the OLED will display information at boot time, but will then shut off once FPPD starts. If not using all six outputs, it is advised to leave port six open so that the OLED will continue to function normally.
You will need a quality SD card with the latest FPP image installed on it. The PocketScroller v2 requires at least FPP 3.1. The latest FPP images can always be found at https://github.com/FalconChristmas/fpp/releases/
