Make a scrolling sign, or a small video display with this 8x8 gridded pure green LED matrix. Only 1.2" on a side, it is quite visible but not so large it wont plug into a breadboard! There are 16 pins on the side, 8 on each, with 0.1" spacing so you can easily plug it into a breadboard with one row on each side for wiring it up.
These LEDs have a deeper green coloring, its a beautiful shade but the process is different than 0:57)
- Dimensions: 32mm / 1.25" x 32mm / 1.25" x 7mm / 0.3"
- Pin Length: 13mm / 0.5"
- Weight: 7.28g
- This is a Common Cathode LED Matrix
The Arduino playground has a nice set of tutorials introducing the MAX7219 and 8x8 LED matrices
