Materials you need: -8x8LED matris (can make one but i bought mine) -16x120Ohm resistors -8xNPN transistors (I used C547B) -1xPIC16f690 -prototype board (or you can make pcb for this) -wire -5V power supply (you can use a voltige regulator but I just power mine from a usb port)
Tools: -PIC programmers (all the pic programmers from microchip exept for pickit1 will work) -Software- MPLAB (free software from microchip) -Soldering iron -A vacum pump for removing solder is good to have -wire cutters
Skills you need: -soldering skill (being capable of making good solder connections within 5-10 sec.) -Logic thinking to some level
If this is your first experiense using microcontrollers I recommend that you start with a more simple project.
