Description:

Keyestudio 8x16 LED matrix panel comes with 128 LEDs and AIP1640 chip welded on the back. This matrix has 128 bright LEDs arranged in a 8x16 grid on the front. On the back there are a AIP1640 chip and a 4Pin interface (GND, VCC, SDA, SCL). Communicate this matrix with microcontrollers via I2C communication. Through controlling the AIP1640 chip, thus control the 128 LEDs on the panel turn on or off, displaying the images you want to show on the LED matrix. And the brightness of LED displays can be set in the code below. For easy wiring, it includes an HX-2.54 4Pin cable.

Comes with:

  • A single 8x16 LED matrix- 4mm pitch
  • An HX-2.54 4Pin cable


 Features:

  • LEDs arranged in a 8x16 grid on the front
  • Be driven by AIP1640 chip welded on the back
  • Comes with a 4Pin interface
  • With four 2.2mm fixed holes, easy to mount it on other devices.

What You Should See:

Upload well the above code to the board, you should see the LED matrix show different images like a heart and a smile.

Set the display image

You can set the display image in the code shown below.


unsigned char table[4][16] = { {0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x26,0x41,0x86,0x80,0x80,0x80,0x86,0x41,0x26,0x00,0x00,0x00},

{0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x1C,0x22,0x42,0x84,0x42,0x22,0x1C,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00},

{0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x20,0x44,0x42,0x84,0x80,0x84,0x42,0x44,0x20,0x00,0x00,0x00},

{0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0xC0,0x40,0xF8,0xD8,0x7E,0xFF,0xC0,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00}};

We set four images, the second one is heart pattern.

Place the matrix module as follows:

Then convert

0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x1C,0x22,0x42,0x84,0x42,0x22,0x1C, 0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00 into Binary number:

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x1C should be 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0

0x22 should be 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0

0x42 should be 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0

0x84 should be 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0

0x42 should be 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0

0x22 should be 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0

0x1C should be 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

0x00 should be 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0


The first hexadecimal number represents the control of the first column of LEDs. The second data represents the control of the second column of LEDs. And so on.

The settings is converting Hexadecimal data into binary data 8-bit.

The number 1 means LED on.

The first converted number is controlling the eighth row of LED on and off, and so on.
