Displaying DMD content via the FAST Serial Protocol

FAST Serial Protocol: Overview & First Steps

This documentation section is about the FAST Serial Protocol (FSP) commands, which are the low-level commands a host computer sends to a FAST board. Most FAST Pinball makers do not need to know about these details, since the pinball game framework (such as the Mission Pinball Framework) handles this communication for you.

If you're writing your own game framework, we have a series of programming guides. Also, be sure to read the overview of how FSP works and how to connect first.

The FAST platform supports two types of DMDs:

  • Modern, full color, RGB LED DMDs, controlled via USB.
  • Old school, single-color DMDs, controlled via the standard classic 14-pin connector.
