Adafruit Matrix Portal - CircuitPython Powered Internet Disp

by milositzg on Wed Mar 24, 2021 2:08 pm

I am an Electronics teacher here in Bethlehem PA looking Product ID 4745 (Circuit Python Matrix Portal). Adafruit has not had them in stock for awhile now and I have two students who are looking to use it for a project they are currently working on and I was wondering if there is a suitable replacement either with Adafruit or another vendor. Any support I can get on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

There are a variety of matrix driver boards for different format boards:

Arduino UNO/Zero/Mega, Metro M0/M4: https://learn.adafruit.com/32x16-32x32-rgb-led-matrix/
M0/M4 feathers: https://learn.adafruit.com/rgb-matrix-featherwing
Raspberry Pi: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-rgb-matrix-plus-real-time-clock-hat-for-raspberry-pi and https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-rgb-matrix-bonnet-for-raspberry-pi

They're not as clean as the MatrixPortal, but do the same job.
