Hooking up 8x8 RGB and Seeeduino card

OK, now I have both the 8x8 RGB matrix and the seeeduino card. Where do I find the info to hook them up like in the youtube video? :?:

Hi Joey:

You would need peripheral circuits to drive it. Please refer to Melka's exciting similar projects here: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaB ... 1229133634

We are working on a Rainbowduino for this kind of application, http://www.seeedstudio.com/blog/?page_id=187 which would be available in Feb. Thank you !

Rainbowduino is pushed out to lower priority, we are still working on the circuit for constant driver with swift switching. If you are not sensitive with display performance, just a few 595 would do the job. Thanks!

What is the status of the RainbowDuino?

I just bought an 8x8 matrix from you on e-bay - I am beginning to wish I had a closer look thru SparkFun's site first, because they offer 8x8 matrix + driver backpack. http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/produc ... cts_id=760

I am not bashing or anything - just wish there were a quick and easy way to drive the matrix.

SparkFun won't sell the driver independent of the matrix.

is it going to be similar to the illuminato ( http://www.liquidware.com/shop/show/ILL/Illuminato ) possibly?

I would buy it right now if it can drive the 8x8 pretty easily out of the box...

forums are always a main source of getting accurate information and provide you the handy results; you can get instant and reliable information which surely helps you in any field of your concern. I am post graduate in IT and HR. These days I am doing preparation of different online certifications and I found network+ questions is the best helping source which is providing 100% authentic material. I also spend my extra time in surfing internet, listening music and playing games. After my exams I would like to join your group
