XMOS introduced an Ethernet-based LED Tile Reference Design Kit. The kit helps digital designers to rapidly develop LED tile systems using daisy chains of Ethernet scan boards. All requirements are implemented entirely in software, which is available on an open source basis as a royalty free download. The XMOS LED Tile Reference Design Kit is available immediately for $349.
XMOS LED Tile Reference Design Kit
- XC-3 scan board pre-loaded with LED application software with 5V power supply
- One 16×32 RGB LED Tile with 5V power supply
- 16-way Ribbon cable
- XTAG connector with USB cable
The LED Reference Design Kit includes an XC-3 scan board preloaded with LED application software and a 16×32 RGB LED module so digital designers can immediately start to develop their LED designs. Additional XC-3 scan boards and modules can easily be plugged in to create a complete display. Each XC-3 can accept video input over UDP on an Ethernet network. Video can be sourced directly from a PC using the open-source video player mplayer included in the LED Reference Design, or from an external data processing engine.
