Led Matrix

I want to make a simple led matrix out of some leds and a 5.6V phone charger, just for it to light up, no animations or any particular control to it, just a simple matrix with an on/off switch.  A link to some instructions? Much appreciated, and is there also some instructions out there to turn a basic light bulb socket to power leds?

24 x 24 LED Matrix Project

I would like to share with you all an awesome project and some doubts and questions related to the same. This is a 24 x 24 LED Matrix project taken from here. All the data is taken from the same link. 24×24 LED dot matrix -->   This is pretty old circuit but I found it interesting to describe here. 24×24 LED display is formed by using 9 8×8 Dot LED matrix displays, that are connected to AT90S2313 MCU. MCU scans an indicator lines in series. Special PC program is written which allows drawing images on screen and transfer them via COM port to device. You can send images in series what gives an animation effect.   Circuit is was built using obsolete AT90S2313 MCU which can be replaced by Attiny2313 MCU with minor modifications of firmware. To make program work you event don’t need to connect device to computer COM port. You can store images in other master MCU EEPROM memory Each received byte from UART is immediately sent to 8 LEDs, second byte to next 8 LEDs and so on. Bytes has to be sent one by one without delay. USART is working at 115200 baud, 8bits, no parity. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PROBLEMS >1>I really dont know if the circuit is good or not tell me if it is going to work. >2>I cant get 8x8 dot matrix displays so i am going to normal leds to a 24x24 one. >3>I have never worked with bus before (the bold red lines in the circuit) so i dont know how to connect it. >4>The schems are segmented i am finding it hard to figure out how to connect some of the segments. >5>Also i need to know how to hook it up to my pc. >6>I have never done programming so i need to know how to program the ic. THANK YOU I couldnt get the images uploaded nicely so i linked them. 1 2

how to detect sensor position with arduino uno

Hi Guys recently i started use arduino UNO and with simple programs to read from analogue pins wasn't hard. now i'm facing a challenge, as i have a sensor mat 16x16 (rows and columns) i want to read 4 rows and 4 columns i'm trying to use the analogue pins as input for rows and digital pins from (8 to 11) as output i want the program to detect the position of the sensing area such as (row1 colum 4, for example) and give me the number that measured over this area. my code is very bad but i'm trying, specially my background wasn't programming or science. any ideas will be great.

POV using LED matrix

Hi, I am doing a project of making and LED analog clock. The clock contains almost 300 LEDss and they are arranged in a specific pattern that looks like and analog clock. My question is how would you create a POV in this design of the clock. I have checked other projects of POV; in those projects the whole device moves along with the row of LEDs and then it created a POV effect. However, in my project, the LEDs are fixed on a plastic sheet. How would I create a POV effect on that??? Please HELP!!!

Hi, I want to make a scanner, or maybe a "modeler". Background info keywords:   <- NOTE THIS PROJECT IS WAY WAY MORE ADVANCED, I WANT A HIGHLY SIMPLIFIED VERSION OF THIS.;=18c044d58272f31902c0c6194ba64eba   <- PICTURE OR JUST GOOGLE IMAGES:  PIN SCREEN Pin-screen. I want to make something that detects where each position is on a Z-axis (their x and y coordinates are fixed). So just a third number per-pin would allow me to map out the entire layout of the pins. I am not too sure if this has been done before or not. If anyone knows of a product that does this I would really appreciate more info. Anyways, THE ARDUINO PROJECT: - Something that takes feedback from each pin and maps it out in the computer. THE QUESTIONS: - How to read the feedback? (what sensor can I use, note that there will be hundreds of these sensors, so they have to be preferably small. Are there some very small linear position detectors? is an optical detector better? (I WOULD PREFER IT TO BE STURDY, i wanna play with it). Im thinking it should be something similar to how TVs work, with a pixel-matrix but instead this would be a matrix of position feedback, and I think it would be simpler than a TV since each channel only gives out 1 feedback (Z-position) instead of an RGB code (3 codes per pixel).  Anyone have some ideas on how to develop this project. Thank you!

Curved/Circular LED Matrix

Hey everyone,  I've been interested in making a new project using an LED display, however, I have no idea how to go about such a matrix without the proper instructions or guidelines since it is very different from a square or rectangular matrix.

high power LED matrix; is it possible and how?

I've been getting into arduino lately and recently discovered the LED matrix.  I also saw some high power LEDs controlled by arduino using transistors to handle the power.  I wondered if the same idea could be applied to a matrix.  It seemed relatively simple, but when I built the circuit in a simulator (everycircuit- an excellent app), I quickly realized some issues with it.  The attached picture is the circuit in the simulator.  You should get an idea of the flaws of the circuit.  I know it would be pretty simple to use relays instead of transistors, but does anyone have any ideas on how to do it with transistors?  NPN or PNP or both.  I can't figure it out how to do it, but I figured that the collective mind of the brilliant members of instructables could probably manage to come up with something.

Really need a "Gearbest" 16x32 r/g LED matrix

Hi, new to this forum but Silvius' excellent work with this 16x32 matrix inspired me to join, mainly to thank him for his work: Anyway, I am working on a project that requires 3 of the LED matrix panels featured in this project. I ordered 3 but broke one of them (my inexperience) so I'm short one of these 16x32 panels. They were available here at Gearbest but they're now sold out. I wonder if anyone who picked one up for a project no longer needs theirs, or has a spare they'd be willing to sell.  I've tried a variation of this board but it's not quite what I need - must be the board with SKU/model 202393. I'm in the UK but I'd be happy to pay for the going rate for postage (and your time having soldered it!) as well as for the unit itself. "I'd see you alright for a drink" as we say here. Let me know what you'd want for it. I figure this is a long shot but thought I'd try! Take pity on a newbie, huh ;-) Thanks, Davey

Help: Creating an LCD screen 'multiplex' using Android screens

I want to make a large digital image using multiple small screens. I was considering using Android LCD screen replacements and somehow linking them all up into a 2x4 grid (more or less) and was wondering if this were at all possible, and if so,how would one go about constructing it with minimal space between the screens. I have little electrical engineering knowledge so could use all the help i can get! I want to note that the idea would be NOT to have this connected to a computer, but to a MUCH smaller unit that would store content for the screens. Thanks guys

LED Questions

Help, I'm afflicted with inspiration in quantities that exceed my skills!So I came up with an idea for a project that would probably require the use of LEDs, which I know next to nothing about. Ah, said I, the Internet can teach me much... so I turned here and found the (nearly) perfect Instructable, "LEDs for Beginners": read this most helpful I'ble, I certainly came away more knowledge than I'd previously had, but still not enough to properly plan my project.Basically, I'd like to create a 2D "array" of LEDs to use as a light source, in order to backlight a roughly 8.5" x 11" translucent panel.It seems like it would be straightforward to just wire up a bunch of white LEDs in series to a power source and a resistor, and be done. I'm not afraid of a little trial-and-error, but I prefer to know at least roughly what I'm doing going in, so I'm asking for your help. Here are my lingering questions:1. Should I wire my LEDs in series, or in parallel? (Or some combination thereof)? In series, I gather that one LED failing will break the whole circuit, which could be a pain. On the other hand, I've seen several projects and sites that cryptically recommend against wiring these in parallel.2. Are there pre-built strips of LEDs I could acquire that would make this project simpler?3. If I want to vary the brightness of my light source, can I use a variable resistor (potentiometer), or does the nature of the LEDs preclude the use of this type of dimmer switch? If so, could I vary the brightness with multiple switched circuits, turning off half the LEDs for half brightness, 3/4 off for quarter-brightness, etc?4. I've got a slew of transformers from old tape decks, telephones, cell phone chargers, etc. Can I appropriate one of these as my DC power supply?5. How do I gauge how many LEDs I'll need, and what density is best to lay them out? I'm looking to create even, diffuse light, with no noticible bright/dark spots.6. Do I need to worry about heat?7. Are LEDs even the correct way to go here? Should I consider fluorescent light instead?I realize these are a lot of questions, but if you're an expert on LED projects, you could save me a lot of research time. If (I build this gadget, it will definitely show up here as its own Instructable.)Thanks!-JD

Which arduino borad to buy?

Http:// Hello! And i am interested in starting arduino! But i am not familiar with the hardware spec of arduino boards. I have some electronics and programming bg as an physics student. I read the above tutorial, the led matrix looks like a easy/cool starter project. However, i have a question, For 4 by 4 matrix, it need 4 outputs and 4 grounds. With 14 i/o pins on an arduino uno (0to13), is 7 by 7 the maximum for upscaling this design without multiplexing? Or if i can get a "shield" that add more pins to the uno? Should i just get a arduino mega with 54 I/O pins? Since it is not that expensive, Is the tutorial compatible with a mega? Actually my target build is two 15 by 15 matrix displaying identical image. Can i rig up two identical led matrix, connect both in parallel to the same board? Thank you in advance! for your replies!!

Yet he does not explain how he hooked it up, obviously he did it somehow. Does ANYONE have any bloody clue as to how this is done? I'm not afraid to do some soldering as I know that'll probably be required but really how hard can it be.
