Interfacing LED matrix to Arduino

Connecting many LEDs on a microcontroller can sometimes be a real hassle. Here you will see how easy it is to connect 80 LEDs to only 8+2 microcontroller pins.

In this project, decimal counter chip CD4017 is used which is controlled with only two pins: clock and reset. Clock pin will "shift" the ON state of outputs from 1 through 10, while reset pin resets state to first output. This counter is used to address 10 rows on a display, while 8 columns (10x8) are controlled directly from a microcontroller which in this case is Arduino. Outputs of decimal counter are amplified with NPN transistors as seen in the schematics. Source code is available for download on project page.

How much is = also add letter "a" at the end of your result! Eg.: 7a
