Introduction: 4x4x4 LED Cube, With MSP430, Using Only 3 Pins

Picture of 4x4x4 LED Cube, With MSP430, Using Only 3 Pins

This is my 4x4x4 led cube project, done with MSP430, using only 3 pins of MSP, the circuit diagram is shown in the photos, the hardware consists of 3 shift registers, 74595, and 4 NPN transistors...

you can learn how to make a 4x4x4 LED cube by instructables or youtube or some other sites, its easy to make...
but make sure that you make exact same connections as shown in the cicuit diagrams... or else this code won't work in the new hardware...

the hardware can be built as shown in the circuit diagram...

the code is given below, you can changes it and make your own animation with it....

como descargo el PDF?

No es necesario el pdf, el diagrama del circuito está en las imágenes. No le he dado el diagrama completo del circuito, usted tendrá que entenderlo a partir de sus propios diagramas y hacer el circuito según su experiencia. Si eres un principiante, entonces puedes ver videos básicos en youtube sobre los cubos de led y luego comenzar a construir el circuito.

En internet solo hay tutoriales para hacer el cubo 3x3x3, pero se ocupan todos los pines del launchpad msp430, lo que yo quiero, es hacer un cubo 6x6x6 usando pocos pines como tu lo hiciste, pero no entiendo muy bien los diagramas y no encuentro mucha informacion en internet parecido a lo que quiero

ok, para hacer un diseño como el mío, necesitas ver tutoriales sobre la interfaz del shift register 74595 con launchpad. el launchpad msp430 envía datos al registro de desplazamiento en serie utilizando 3 pins. Esa información se entrega paralelamente al cubo conducido ... Primero búscala tú mismo, si no encuentras nada, entonces te ayudaré ...

ok, to make a design like mine, you need to watch tutorials about interfacing shift register 74595 with launchpad. the msp430 launchpad sends data to the shift register serially using 3 pins. That data is parallelly given out to the led cube... first search it of your own, if you dont find anything, then i will help you...

1.ok, ya entendí, solo 2 preguntas:

1. ¿La pata del colector de los transistores a donde van conectadas?

2.¿De cuanto son las resistencias?

Perdón por la respuesta tardía, y perdón por el mal diagrama ... el diagrama real es este ...

According to what I have put tohether a video led diodes?

What resistors were used ?

Can you send me the diagram ? because on that which is on instructables can not see well. Thank you

tooose made it! (author)2015-03-24

work perfect , nice designed ...

Sorry if i am being a bit annoying, or stupid. is there a fritzing diagram or somethig htat can help me with connections?

Samartist (author)Shortcircui2014-09-13

its okay, you can clear every doubt of yours here... feel free to ask anything...

wat do you mean by "fritzing diagram"?

actually i dont have this project with me now, or i would have sent you a new circuit diagram...

Shortcircui (author)Samartist2014-09-13

If you havent heard of fritzing, it is definitely worth checking out. http://fritzing.org/home/

You can download it, and you can make circuits on breadboards, schematics and even order custom PCBs from here. i found they do have the SN74CH595 chip there, and i think they have the MSP430 Launchpad, so perhaps this could be useful to you in the future?

Shortcircui (author)2014-09-08

how many bits is the 74595. 8 i presumed, but this is just because TI has the sn74hc595. are these the same?

Samartist (author)Shortcircui2014-09-08

yeah both are same thing....

Eagle199393 made it! (author)2014-02-10

Here you can see how it works ---- http://youtu.be/rdWdodcqL8Q

Samartist (author)Eagle1993932014-05-31

good work, but it seems so messy...
