Sparkfun 8x8 RGB Led Matrix with PWM

Per title, it's the sparkfun RGB backpack. I got bored and wrote a framebuffer for it and ported over some monochrome display hacks from peggy 2.0. Then I added color support. 12 bits per pixel, non log-scaled, but it still looks pretty good.

PS - There are a few other display hacks that I didn't get into this video. This is part of some work I did today to get a framebuffer w/basic drawing apis up and running. Going to reuse it with an 8051 core on the FPGA displays.
