Display on MAX7219 Dot Matrix Using Maker NANO

This time, we will display on MAX7219 dot matrix using Maker NANO.

INTRODUCTION

A dot-matrix display is an electronic digital display device that displays information on machines such as clocks, public transport departure indicators, information signage, and many other devices requiring a simple alphanumeric display device of limited resolution. With this dot matrix display, we can display information that we want to tell other people. Watch this video to know how to display text or information on dot-matrix using Maker NANO.

REMINDER

Certain 4 In 1 MAX7219 Dot Matrix Display Module uses different hardware definition in coding. If you have trouble following steps provided in the tutorial (which is using FC16_HW), you can try another hardware types as shown below:

  1. PAROLA_HW
  2. GENERIC_HW
  3. ICSTATION_HW

VIDEO

This video shows how to interface MAX7219 Dot Matrix with Maker NANO (Arduino) to print and scroll message on Dot Matrix Display.
