    For those of you looking for an alternative device to run pin2dmd as replacement display, look how we turned this:

    to that:

    And its of course not only a splash screen, but really a full functional port of the pin2dmd firmware to the kinetis processor architecture:

    Configuration files and colorizations are fully compatible to the stm32 version of pin2dmd.

    Hope you like it.

    You have to add that the STM32 processor still has some big advantages to the Kinetis MK66 and therefore is still the first choice for all future development of pin2dmd. There were a lot of problems we had to get around during the port due to the lack of peripheral functions in the kinetis mpu which speed up the processing of the data, but nevertheless it is working and took us only about 4 weeks to make it happen.

    FYI:
    Currently we are not able to release the pin2dmd firmware for MK66 because of the lack of information how to pack the firmware for the utasker bootloader (https://github.com/uTasker/uTasker-Kinetis) preloaded on DMDMK66 boards. The encryption option of utasker is activated for firmware updates and as long as we donĀ“t have the encryption parameters (key, prime and shift value) the upgrade process is not at all user friendly and also not reversable. If pinballsp provides us the necessary information we can release the firmware almost instantly.
