This is a large 8x8 LED Matrix Module DIY Kit. When completed, the LED matrix is around 144mm x 144mm in size which is much larger than any readily available LED Matrix.
The awesome MAX7219 IC is used to drive the LED Matrix. These LED Matrix Modules can be daisy-chained together to form a large and long display driven by any suitable microcontroller using just 3 digital outputs.
The unique thing about this LED Matrix Module is that other than the LEDs, one is able to view the background behind the LED Matrix. This offers some creative use of these LED matrices such as placing them against glass panels whereby people around is able to see happenings behind these LED matrices. You may place some form of backing for your LED matrices if you find it distracting to read what is being displayed.
Note: The 64 x LEDs required to complete the kit set are not included in the base kit set but can be purchased as add-on parts. Currently, we only offer the 3mm blue diffused LED as add-on parts. You may use LEDs of any size such as the commonly available 3mm, 5mm, 8mm and 10mm LEDs but do remember to use LEDs with long legs of at least 23mm long in order to successfully bend and solder them together using just the legs on the LEDs.
