Overview

We will make three examples, with the rst one we will explain the basic working principle of the MAX7219 , in the second example we will
see how the scrolling text on the 8×8 LED Matrix works, and in the third example we will control them via Bluetooth and a custom build
Android application.

MAX7219

Now let’s take a closer look at the MAX7219 driver. The IC is capable of driving 64 individual LEDs while using only 3 wires for
communication with the Arduino, and what’s more we can daisy chain multiple drivers and matrixes and still use the same 3 wires.

The 64 LEDs are driven by 16 output pins of the IC. The question now is how is that possible.  Well the maximum number of LEDs light up at
the same time is actually eight. The LEDs are arranged as 8×8 set of rows and columns. So the MAX7219 activates each column for a very
short period of time and at the same time it also drives each row. So by rapidly switching through the columns and rows the human eye
will only notice a continuous light.

Note how the pins of a common 8×8 LED Matrix are internally arranged, so if you are building a matrix on your own you should consider it.
Also note that a common breakout board for the MAX7219 comes with a resistor between the 5V and the IC pin number 18. The resistor is
used for setting the brightness or the current ow to the LEDs.

The following table from the datasheet of the IC shows the value of the resistor that we should use according to the forward voltage drop
of our LEDs.

Circuit Schematic

Now let’s connect the 8×8 LED Matrix module to the Arduino Board. Here’s the circuit schematic:

The VCC and GND of the module go to the 5V and GND pins of the Arduino and the three other pins, DIN, CLK and CS go to any digital pin
of the Arduino board. If we want to connect more than one module we just connect the output pins of the previous breakout board to the
input pins of the new module. Actually these pins are all the same except that the DOUT pin of the previous board goes to the DIN pin of
the new board.

Basic MAX7219 Arduino Code

Once we connect the modules we are ready to take a look at the Arduino code of the rst example. We will use the MaxMatrix library which
can be downloaded from GitHub (https://github.com/riyas-org/max7219).

Description: So rst we need to include the MaxMatrix.h library, de ne the pins to which the module is connected, set how many modules
we use and de ne the MaxMatrix object.

For displaying characters we need to de ne them in an array of characters or bytes, and here I have several examples. We can notice how
the bits are forming the characters which are actually zeros and ones. In this case they are rotated 90 degrees but the library example
suggests to use them in such a way so that would be easier later to implement the shiftLeft custom function for scrolling a text.

In the setup section we just need to initialize the module and set the brightness of the LEDs. In the loop section using the setDot() function
we can set any individual LED to light up at X, Y or Row/ Column position and using the clear() function we can clear the display.

For displaying the prede ned characters we use the writeSprite() function, and rst two arguments are the X and Y position of the upper
left corner of character. At the end using the shiftLeft() function we move or scroll the character to the left.

Description: Here we have to include an additional library for the PROGMEN which is variable modi er and it’s used for storing data in the
ash memory instead of SRAM. When we have a larger database of variables which are static, like in this case de ning letters and
characters, it’s better to store them in the ash memory because it’s much bigger, 32K bytes, compared to the 2K bytes of the SRAM.

Next with a character array we de ne the scrolling text and in the loop section the custom function printStringWithShift, prints the
scrolling text on the LED matrix with a scrolling speed de ned in milliseconds with the second argument. The rst thing that this custom
function do is that it extracts the characters from the text string and then display these scrolling characters on the led matrix.

Android App for Controlling 8×8 LED Matrix via Bluetooth

Once we learned how the MAX7219 works, now we can make the third example which is a practical Arduino project where we will build a
custom Android app to control the LED matrix via Bluetooth communication. Before we continue I would suggest you to check my detailed
tutorials on how to use the HC-05 Bluetooth module (https://howtomechatronics.com/tutorials/arduino/arduino-and-hc-05-bluetooth-
module-tutorial/) and how to build a custom Android app using the MIT App Inventor online application
(https://howtomechatronics.com/tutorials/arduino/how-to-build-custom-android-app-for-your-arduino-project-using-mit-app-inventor/).

Description: First we need to include the SoftwareSerial.h library which will enable the Bluetooth communication and de ne some
variables needed for the program. In the setup section we need to initialize the Bluetooth at its default baud rate of 38400 bits per second.
I set the initial text message to be “HowToMechatronics.com” with 100 milliseconds delay scrolling speed.

Next, in the loop section, using the Bluetooth.available() function we check whether there is incoming data from the serial port and if that’s
true using the Bluetooth.read function we start reading the serial port, one byte each iteration. So the rst incoming byte will be always
stored into the “indicator” variable and according to it choose whether we will change the text message, the scrolling speed or the
brightness of the LED matrix.

If we take a look at the Android app code blocks we can notice that when the “Send” button is clicked, rst we send the indication byte, in
this case “1”, which means we want the change the text message. In order to do that, at the Arduino side, we will clear the whole character
array and also clear the LED matrix display. Then in the “while” loop we will read the rest of the data in the serial port, and that’s the
messaged typed in the text box of the Android app.

In case the indication variable is “2”, that means we have changed the position of the scrolling speed slider, so we will read its new value
using the Bluetooth.readString() function and adjust the scrolling speed. In the same way we adjust the brightness of the LEDs.

Sure you can achieve this with di erent dot matrix but you would probably need a di erent code as well.

I have loved your videos, some of the most informative, however this one is not working properly. I have no problems reading
mechatronics.com on the matrix but cant communicate with it via BT . None of the app features work for me, are you not using tx/rx
pins on the arduino? It seems your using 7,8 and using 7 for the matrix. I hope this is clear. I have been trying to gure this out for weeks
and cant. We are making a sign for the church and trying to use this please help!!!.

That’s correct, pins 9 and 8 are for the Bluetooth, and for the matrix, 7 is Din, 6 CLK, 5 CS. I made a correction in the code.
Additionally you can check my other detailed tutorials about using Arduino, Bluetooth, Android and the App Inventor.

Dear Dejan, thank you for your well written tutorials and your will to share them with the Arduino community worldwide. Now i
would really like your opinion/help.

I did everything like in the article and the message is scrolling perfectly but i cannot connect my smartphone with the bluetooth
device. I see the BT05 but when i try to conenct i get no reply from it. It seems that maybe the problem is that the HC-05 is in AT
mode and not in Data mode and thats why the red LED is blinking slowly (1 time every 2 sec) . Do you have any idea what is may
causing the fault? Also in the serial monitoring when i press something i am not receiving ‘ok’ as a reply from the module.

The code needs the following

Well you should rst try the examples from the basic Arduino Bluetooth tutorial. You might have connected the Bluetooth module
incorrectly (or de ned the pins incorrectly), or maybe you model has di erent default baud rate of 9600 instead of 38400.

Excellent project, all working ne except I can’t connect from my Android (version 4.1.2) using the app. The Android bluetooth setting
sees the HC-05 and pairs with it OK but when clicking “Connect” on the app, it says “not connected”. Have tested the HC-05 with other
devices and it works ne – any ideas?
Thank you.

Not quite sure, but I guess there isn’t much you can do about it. Probably the MIT app inventor is not compatible with the older
Android version.

Thanks for the reply; I’ve loaded the app on my mobile and it works ne so you are right. Have added another 4 LED matrix board
making 8 in total and get the following problem:
Numbering the LED modules from 1 to 8 starting with the one nearest the Arduino, program works ne with up to 4 modules,
changing to 5 (maxInUse = 5), the display starts half way across module 1 and also does not display on the rst half of module 6.
Changing the number of modules through 6 to 8, I have the same problem but moved over one module. Set to 4, I get the same
message displayed twice – on 1 to 4 and 5 to 8 so I know all the modules are working OK and can’t nd any problem with the wiring.
Have you tried this program with 8 modules?

Hello, i have a problem with the App.


Left down block there is a stetement set Message Status.Text to …
I´ve no idea where this comes from and so i´m not able to send any text to the hc 05.
Is ist possible tha you upload the .aia le for the app inventor?

As a follow-up to my previous post, I’ve now made a printed circuit board for this project and with 6 modules connected, it runs ne (30
minutes, no problems). When I add one or two more module, after about 1 minute, various faults occur – whole modules stop
displaying and /or random leds ashing on and o . I’m using a 5 volt power supply capable of supplying several amps so don’t think it’s
a power problem. Have also added decoupling capacitors across all the voltage rails to each module. Have also tried adding pull-up
resistors and then pull-down resistor to the CS, CLOCK and DIN lines without any improvement. If I power o and on again, it works ne
for a minute or so. Just wondered if anyone else has got this working with all eight modules connected.

Thanks for the follow-up, you have done quite some work to get there. I’m so sorry I’m not able to give any speci c help at this point,
as I don’t have and haven’t tried working with 8 modules. How about trying it with another Arduino board?

Hi Dejan
Thanks for the reply and you were 100% correct. Have tried it with Uno and Nano and both work as expected; no glitches! Re-tried
with 2 other Pro Minis and both these gave same problems so either I’ve got a bad batch or the Pro Mini is not suitable. Will be
using the Nano for this project now. Thanks again for you help.

Mr. John & Mr. Dejan…


Iam so sorry to join in this comment. May be my answer will help you to solbe the problem.

My question is from where the the 5V which supplying the 8pcs dot matrix module? Is it take from yhe arduino or from external
power suplies? As I know the 5V pin of arduino only can supply the module in a limited Amp. So maybe it will dropped when you ise
the 6 or 8 pcs dot matrix in high brightness.

My suggestion is set the brightness to be (1) or use an extelnal 5V supply directly to the dotmatrix module.

Hope this can helpfully…

Sorry, I forgot to mention that though code is working great, it is displaying and scrolling text in wrong direction… Text needs to be
rotated 90 degrees. Any way to do it?

I know that’s a problem that occurs with some models. You could try with di erent library or with di erent bytes for the character
array.

Good afternoon,
I made the design with two Matrix MAX7219, in the test with the code “8×8 LED Matrix MAX7219 Scrolling Text Android Control via
Bluetooth”, the scrolling is starting in each Matrix at the same time. I am using the Arduino Mega ADK, could this be the cause of this
error. Do I have to modify anything in the code?

You need to change:


int maxInUse = 1;
to
int maxInUse = 2;
because you are using two modules.

If the bluetooth control does not work you need to change the speed of the serial port to 9600.
133. Bluetooth.begin(9600); // Default communication rate of the Bluetooth module
Enjoy!

Hi Dejan,

Thanks a lot for sharing. Very good job!


For me, everything is OK (I had just to adapt the pins for Arduino UNO and the speed for Bluetooth Module to 9600 and the number of
modules to 8).
I’m using FC-16 ( 2 x 4 modules of MAXX7216 soldered from factory).
Is there a way to turn each module to 1/4 turn anti-clockwise ? I don’t want to de-solder and resolder the 8 modules !

PS in another project I tried (with another library), I had the same problem and I found that I had to adapt from this in the IDE :
from this :

I tried to change a lot of stu s into libraries, code, etc… but without success.
So if you have an idea how I can x that … I will be gracefull !!

Have a good day.
