Details

Come join us at The Forge Makerspace (located in the North Branch Library, Denton, TX) to learn about the Arduino. In this class we will be covering the following:

Control an 8x8 LED matrix display with the MAX7219 controller (http://bit.ly/2h2DaFD) (22:50) In this lecture, you will learn how to use the MAX7219 LED controller IC with a single 8x8 matrix LED display. You can combine these two components together to create large LED matrix displays, but in this lecture we'll keep it simple. In a separate lecture, we'll expand to multi-display setups.

Visualise ADXL335 accelerometer data on an 8x8 LED matrix display (http://bit.ly/2h2HNiY) (6:55) In this presentation you will learn how to graph data from an ADXL335 on an 8x8 LED matrix display that we conected in the previous presentation.

Control multiple 8x8 LED matrix displays (http://bit.ly/2hiwLpi) (6:25) In this presentation, you will learn how to use the MAX7219 LED controller IC with four 8x8 matrix LED display. Parts Needed:

Arduino UNO (http://amzn.to/2guHM9Z) 8x8 LED matrix (http://amzn.to/2gOc73F) MAX7219 (http://amzn.to/2h2g19z) ADXL335 accelerometer (http://amzn.to/2himBVN)
