MAX7219 Display Driver Shield

MAXREFDES99# Display Driver Shield using the MAX7219 LED Driver

Maxim Integrated

Maxim’s MAXREFDES99# is an Arduino® form-factor shield, which drives a 16x16 LED array for signage applications. This design is ideal for anyone developing a display application. The board features Maxim’s MAX7219, a legendary LED driver that simplifies the process of controlling multiple LEDs in matrix or numeric display form. In MAXREFDES99#, four MAX7219 ICs are daisy chained to drive a full 256-LED array, which can display any international alphanumeric symbol. The board arrives complete with four 8x8 LED displays. Code for the MAXREFDES99# is available on both Arduino and ARM® mbed™ platforms for quick prototyping with multiple platform boards. System demonstrations include the display of ASCII characters ‘SPACE’ through ‘~’ and writing/scrolling string messages. Developers are encouraged to build upon and enhance the code base.
