 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

This is a Christmas card with an arduino, max7221 and a 8x8 matrix LED.

My first version was a 64pixels attiny greating card:
I collected some patterns and used a 5x7 font
see video here:


For arduino I used a max7221 with the library LedControl.h
http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/LedControl

...it's the same code sequence in this arduino video :-)
see video:



Here is the font and the code for arduino:

font.h
Code:
#include <avr/io.h>
#include <avr/pgmspace.h>

#ifndef FONT_H_
#define FONT_H_

#define MAX_CHARS 59
#define CHAR_OFFSET 0x20

const uint8_t font[] PROGMEM = {
  // 5 chars bitmap, stop bit is bit.7
0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x80,      // 0x20, 32, '

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

a very strict forum: no code uploads, only 9500 Byte message length

lets try
here the first part of LCDMatrix.pde 1/2
Code:
//We always have to include the library
#include "LedControl.h"
#include "font.h"
#include <avr/pgmspace.h>

/*
 Now we need a LedControl to work with.
 ***** These pin numbers will probably not work with your hardware *****
 pin 12 is connected to the DataIn
 pin 11 is connected to the CLK
 pin 10 is connected to LOAD
 We have only a single MAX72XX.
 */
LedControl lc=LedControl(12,11,10,1);

void setup() {
  /*
   The MAX72XX is in power-saving mode on startup,
   we have to do a wakeup call
   */
  lc.shutdown(0,false);
  /* Set the brightness to a medium values */
  lc.setIntensity(0,8);
  /* and clear the display */
  lc.clearDisplay(0);
}

// Change these values to adjust scroll speeds and animation iterations
#define ANIMATION_SCROLL_SPEED 200  // how fast to scroll the animations
#define ANIMATION_SPEED 300              // how fast to change to next picture
#define TEXT_SCROLL_SPEED 120      // how fast to scrill the text (wait)
#define REPEAT_ANIMATION 2        // how often to repeat the animation if in cycling mode
#define REPEAT_TEXT 1              // how often to repeat the text if in cycling mode

// How to add a new message:
// * add the new message (only upper case, see font.h)
// * adjust MAX_MESSAGES
// * add the new message to messages
// NOTE: messages may not be longer than 255 chars.
