8×8 LED Matrix Interfacing with AVR Microcontroller




In this session we are going to design an 8×8 LED display with 8×8 LED matrix and ATmega8 microcontroller, which can show alphabets or names.

LED Matrix Interfacing with AVR Microcontroller

A 8×8 LED matrix contains 64 LED (Light Emitting Diodes) which are arranged in the form of a matrix, hence the name LED matrix. These matrixes can be made by circuiting 64 LEDs; however that process is time consuming. Now a day they are available in compact forms as shown in figure. These compact modules are available in different sizes and many colors. One can choose them on convenience.




The cost of module is same as cost of 64 LED, so for a hobbyist this is easiest to work on. The PIN configuration of the module is as shown in figure. The PINs should be number exactly as shown in picture for avoiding errors. We will discuss the internal circuit configuration of module in detail in description.

Components

Hardware: ATMEGA8, Power supply (5v), AVR-ISP PROGRAMMER, 100 uF capacitor(connected across power supply), 1KΩ resistor(8 pieces).

Software: Atmel studio 6.1, progisp or flash magic.
