This section is under construction:

Now we have enough information to map out the important parts of the Input connector. We will also look at the output connector.

First the input. The pinout of the input connector looks like this:

I have not examined the output connector thoroughly and will not really need to until I have one unit working and want to daisy chain more than one. I do know this pinout:

This gives us enough to work with to start trying to drive the display. Next we can start interfacing it to the Arduino and start trying to mak a program to drive it.

Do you have the pinouts for the board yet?

  Are you sure? yes | no
