16x16 chained panels possible?

Hey guys, Is it possible to use 16x16 panels chained together with SmartMatrix3? I do have a SmartMatrix V4 in another project, and love how the library works, so I would just like to use it in a project that doesnt use the board.
I have 5 of these next to each other


Currently using a port of NeoMatrix for FastLed and it works, but I love the layers and buffer features of SmartMatrix.

Sorry, no Neopixel/WS2812 support is there or planned. I started on adding APA102 support, but it’s on hold indefinitely at the moment.

Aww Damn! Thanks for the fast response tho :slight_smile:

@ShreddinPB but unless you have pixelmatix specific code that uses layers, why don’t you use my FastLED::NeoMatrix library?

You can simply connect your panels to an ESP8266/ESP32 or teensy chip and do serial or parallel output for faster refresh rates.
Example of 16 way parallel output for 4096 pixels:
