You have nothing else to do during the weekend and you don’t want to waste your time wandering at the shopping mall? Hmm, maybe this Marquee LED array display can keep you busy for a while!
If you think that this Marquee LED array display is nothing, but an ordinary LED display, then you’re totally wrong here! This Marquee thing is allowing you to keep up to date on incoming emails, news, daily weather or even the stock/forex quotes.
Ok, first of all, you have to prepare 120 LEDs, where the LEDs will be used to build an array display. Beside that, you need to learn how to control them all from one microcontroller, also the correct ways to talk to it from your computer (Don’t worry, the video clip on the below will show you step by step how to deal with this gigantic Marquee LED array display!)
This project is makes use of row-column addressing, thus it will let you to control many LEDs without having one wire going to each one. Beside that, if you want to double the number of LEDs, then you can consider to handle it with the help of ATmega168 microcontroller.
Guys, have fun with this Marquee!
