Arrangement of LED’s Consider an 8X8 matrix display, which means it contains 8 LED’s in each row and 8 such rows are used to form the matrix. Thus, it contains 64 LED’s (8*8).It is hardly practical to operate these 64 LED’s individually using any kind of digital circuits or microcontroller circuits. Hence, multiplexing is done to interface these LED’s with minimum number of pins. Typically, an 8X8 matrix display can be interfaced with 16 pins. Similar to a seven...

Segment Displays Inside Segment Displays Segment Displays contain LEDs arranged in a specific fashion such that, various characters or shapes can be displayed, by turning ON selective segments in different combinations. Shape of the LED is rectangular (to appear as a segment).Generally, these are used to display numbers. As of now, alpha-numeric characters can also be displayed using 16-Segment display. Basically, there are two types of displays based on common node of LEDs inside the display. The configurations shown below...
