  • Connect the GND to the GND
  • Connect input10 to CS
  • Connect input11 to DIN
  • Connect inpot13 to CLK

Step 3: Adding Another Matrix

Connect the VCC,GRD, ect., to create a daisy chain

Step 4: The Code

This is the code and library you'll need to run the matrix.

Step 5: Modifying the Code

<p>I'm sure I could find a use for something like this as I'm working on a smart home project. Excellent work., thanks for sharing.</p>
Nice built:)
<p>Great work! impressed.</p>
