Introduction: How to Use Max7219 8x8 Dot Matrix With "skiiiD"
This is a video instruction of Max7219 8x8 Dot Matrix via "skiiiD"
Before start, below is a basic tutorial for how to use skiiiD
Step 1: Launch SkiiiD
#1 Launch skiiiD and select New button
Step 2: Select Arduino UNO
#2 Select ①Arduino Uno and then click ②OK button
*This is Tutorial, and we use Arduino UNO. Other boards(Mega, Nano) have the same process.
Step 3: Add Component
#1 Click '+' (Add Component Button) to search and select the component.
Step 4: Search or Find a Component
#2 ① Type 'Dot matrix' on the search bar or find Dot matrix module on the list.
Step 5: Select Dot Matrix
#3 ②Click Dot matrix
Step 6: Pin Indication and Configuration
#4 then you can see ③ pin indication. (You can configure it.)
*This module has 5 Pin to connect skiiiD Editor automatically indicate pin setting *configuration available
[Default Pin Indication for Max7219 Dot Matrix Module] in case of Arduino UNO
#5 After configuring pins ④ click ADD button on the right below side
Step 7: Check Added Module
#6 ⑤Added Module has appeared on right panel
Step 8: SkiiiD Code of Dot Matrix Max7219
skiiiD Code is intuitive function-based codes. This is based on skiiiD libraries.
clear() - Turn off all Dot LED
son() - Turn on a specific coordinate of dot
LED off() - Turn off a specific coordinate of dot
LEDsetBrightness() - Set a brightness of led light (0 ~ 9)
displayNumber() - Display a number
displayAlphabet() - Display an alphabet
