This repo is part a wider Tickertape Retro Display project that you can use to create your own Internet of Things LED display with that retro feel.

Check out the website, and my other project for the code library for Arduino and ESP32 for the rest of the project.

How the project works

Eagle version 9.1.3 was used on a Windows PC to create these files. Some of the parts used, were made specifically for this project, and can be found here too.

In addition to the standard libraries the following Eagle libraries were also used:


Holtek Semiconductor Inc. Devices
RAM Mapping 16*8 LED Controller Driver with keyscan
SOP28, SOP24, SOP20
Created by S.Hofmann

Various SparkFun libraries:


All of these are easy to find either in the library manager, or from the github pages for these projects. The sparkfun link has further great information for using Eagle and custom libraries installing them, everything. So I won't try and replicate that here!

License Information

This library is released under the Creative Commons ShareAlike 4.0 International license. You are welcome to use this library for commercial purposes. For attribution, we ask that when you begin to sell your device, you email us with a link to the product being sold. It would be great to see where this project goes, and will perhaps feature it on the website.

Together we can help the open-source hardware community continue to thrive and grow!

This project uses the 1206 LED footprint and some other helpful parts from the SparkFun projects listed above to help with the project. None of them were modified, they were used as-is.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
