These matrices are fun to play around with, but their size makes them difficult to use on most breadboards. Here's one way to mount it on a small breadboard in a (relatively) neat way.
You'll need:
1 breadboard
1 8x8 LED matrix (this one is 1588BS)
Standard yellow, blue, grey, and brown jumper wires. (4 of each)

(Optional): 4 additional yellow wires OR 4 green wires.

Step 1: Yellow

Connect yellow jumpers across b8-b12, i8-i12, b19-b23, and i19-i23.

Just used two bread boards

Hi, I connect similar LED matrix display to shift registers and when I start to multiplex it quite much decreased a ligning of the diodes. It is because of multiplexing? I can hardly see the text on the matrix even if I am sending there about 1A through diodes (at mutliplexing the matrix display allow use higher currrent). What could be a problem?

Hey ! me too. oh my god it makes me crazy è_é
Did you find a tutorial that use all the 1588BS and MAX7219 and arduino ?
Thanks ;)

are you going to include the rest of the design components that your using in the last picture? assuming that your build is to change the speed where the light switches from point to point increase or decrease via the wiper

Nice, thanks for sharing!
