I wrote an Arduino library for Sure Electronics 3216 bicolor led display. I released the library under GPLv3 within a repository on Google Code (keyword: ht1632c ... I cannot link the project due to "Your post looks too spamy for a new user, please remove off-site URLs." :roll: )

I ported the library to Leaflab Maple and ChipKIT Uno32.

Some benchmarks (with two cascaded 3216 displays):

  • Arduino Uno and clones (AVR ATMega328 16Mhz) 135 fps
  • Leaflab Mapls (ARM STM32 F103RB 72Mhz) 500 fps
  • ChipKIT Uno32 (Microchip PIC32MX320F128 80Mhz) 1050 fps

NB: This library is a work in progress! Not extensively tested with all platforms, not fully working with > 2 cascaded displays.
