Pin Connection

VCC: Connect this pin to the positive power supply, typically 5V.

GND: Connect this pin to the ground (0V) of your power supply.

DIN (Data In): Connect this pin to the data output of your microcontroller. This is where the data is sent to the MAX7219.

CS (Chip Select): Connect this pin to the chip select pin of your microcontroller. It is used to enable or disable the MAX7219.

CLK (Clock): Connect this pin to the clock output of your microcontroller. It provides the clock signal for the data transfer.

Technical Details OF led matrix max7219

  • Driver IC: MAX7219
  • Input Voltage (V): 5
  • Max. Operating Current (mA): 320
  • LED Color: Red

Display Size: 8x8, meaning it has 8 columns and 8 rows of LEDs, resulting in a total of 64 LEDs on the module.

Driver Chip: MAX7219 is a serially interfaced LED driver IC that allows for easy control of multiple LEDs using a minimal number of pins. It supports a daisy-chaining feature, enabling the connection of multiple modules in a series.

Interface: The module typically interfaces with a microcontroller or any other digital device through a 3-wire SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) connection.

The pins include

  • VCC: Power supply pin (usually 5V).
  • GND: Ground pin.
  • DIN (Data In): Input for serial data.
  • CS (Chip Select): Active-low chip selects input.
  • CLK (Clock): Clock input.

Daisy-Chaining: The modules can be daisy-chained, allowing you to control multiple displays with a single set of control pins from the microcontroller. This is achieved by connecting the DOUT (Data Out) pin of one module to the DIN (Data In) pin of the next module.

Brightness Control: The MAX7219 supports brightness control for the LEDs. The intensity of the display can be adjusted through software, allowing for different levels of brightness.

Cascading Multiple Modules: By connecting multiple modules in series, you can create larger displays or scrolling text effects.

Library Support: Various libraries are available for popular microcontrollers like Arduino, making it easy to interface with the MAX7219 and control the display.

Applications: The 8x8 LED Dot Matrix Display Module MAX7219 is commonly used in projects where a compact and programmable LED display is required, such as digital clocks, message boards, and simple animations.

Product works fine

The product is awesome perfectly soldered, good intensity of light, they included female to female connectors which is suited for an Arduino nano, but frankly speaking, I'd like a female to male connector as it is more convenient to use the product via a breadboard, anyways we get the connectors for very cheap so no worries, this product is awesome

Worked pretty well and very good packaging

Good one. It has SPI interface

Good one. It has SPI interface, which made the job easier. It took just a few minutes to connect to Raspberry Pi and drive through readily available python library.
