8 by 8 Matrix - Beginner Project

Introduction: 8 by 8 Matrix - Beginner Project

This is the perfect project to create for someone who is just beginning to learn the 8 by 8 matrix. It is definitely a cool project and could be personalized in so many ways.

Supplies

  • Breadboard (optional)
  • 8 by 8 matrix
  • Jumper Wires (a lot of them)
  • Arduino

Step 1: Step 1: Assemble

You want to begin by knowing each of the pins. There are 16 pins on the 8 by 8 matrix, from 1-16

  • Connect pin 1 to 13 on the Arduino
  • Connect pin 2 to 12 on the Arduino
  • Connect pin 3 to 11 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 4 to 10 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 5 to A2 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 6 to A3 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 7 to A4 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 8 to A5 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 9 to 2 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 10 to 3 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 11 to 4 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 12 to 5 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 13 to 6 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 14 to 7 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 15 to 8 on the Arduino

  • Connect pin 16 to 9 on the Arduino

Step 2: The Code

You can customize the code to make whatever you would like on the matrix. Just modify >> Ishreet and << Face to create whatever you would like. All you have to do is change the 0 (off) and 1's (on) on the code in order to light up any specific LED in the matrix.

Here is the code:
