EASY plug I2C 8x8 LED Matrix


thumb

Introduction

What's better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! A fun way to make a small display is to use an 8x8 matrix. This matrix uses a driver chip that does all the heavy lifting for you: They have a built in clock so they multiplex the display. They use constant-current drivers for ultra-bright, consistent color, 1/16 step display dimming, all via a simple I2C interface.
Note: this module needs to be used together with EASY plug control board.


Specification

  • Interface: Easy plug
  • Supply voltage: 4.5V-5.5V
  • Maximum display: 16*8
  • Size: 53*32mm
  • Weight: 6g

  // a 8x16 bit matrix (8 rows, 16 columns)
