DMD Extender - New Version
The DMD Extender will now be sold as Version 2 which supports Raspberry Pi Model 1 A+ / B+ and Zero / Zero W.
This update has been made to support the Raspberry Pi Zero which is the cheapest version available. This has meant removing support for the original Pis which are no longer manufactured.
To support the Zero, the DMD Extender now includes a composite video connector which is missing from the Zero, and the shop now sells the necessary Connector Pins to allow connection to the DMD Extender.
To allow convenient composite connections with A+ and B+ the shop now sells a Composite Video Adapter cable.
Where It All Began
12th October 2012 - First demonstration of the DMD Extender at Northern Lights Pinball show in Manchester, UK.
8 years on and more than 500 extenders sold in 4 continents (nothing to Antarctica yet!) and we're still going strong. Thanks for all the support.
